2 Intolerable Acts Opening
Intolerable – Impossible to endure; unbearable. Coercive – to act by force; strong-arm After the Boston Tea Party, England passed a series of strict new laws to punish the colonists. In England, they referred to the 4 new laws as Coercive. In the 13 Colonies, they were referred to as Intolerable. Prompt: Write a sentence using the word “Intolerable,” as if you were a colonist in the 1770’s. Write a sentence using the word “Coercive,” as if you were a British soldier in the 1770’s. Which would you rather be, the soldier or the colonist? WHY?
