Duration: 90-120 min

In these lessons, High School students will research the views of Thomas Jefferson and King George III in preparation for a simulation ‘social media discussion’ after their meeting in London in 1786 – this will enable students to understand and debate some of the key ideas and events of the American Revolution and post war US/UK relations.
