1. INQUIRY QUESTION The American Revolution was a time of great change in the history of the United States of America. Before we became a country, American patriot soldiers fought to end tyranny by the British king and colonial government. Colonists in the 13 colonies were often conflicted as to whether they should join the rebel patriots, or whether they should be loyalists to England and the king. This conflict plays a huge part in the novel “My Brother Sam Is Dead” by James Lincoln Collier and Christopher Collier. Understanding why people chose one side over the other during the American Revolution will help us to understand the conflicts in the novel.

6. TEACHER SUPPORT MATERIALS Grade 9 ESOL/EFL1 Unit: My Brother Sam is Dead Objective: Students will conduct brief, focused research in order to gain background knowledge necessary for understanding themes in the novel My Brother Sam is Dead. Time Frame: 90 minutes Differentiation strategies for this lesson: When students are finished researching either Patriots or Loyalists, they will share with students who researched the opposite topic. Some teachers may choose to do this sharing as a group. Students with higher skills could share their knowledge in partners while vocalizing their part of the information to a partner, rather than letting someone copy off the sheet. The quantity of required examples and details on the graphic organizer can be adjusted based on ability. Notes to the teacher: Modeling the research and use of the graphic organizer for the research and use of the graphic organizer for both the Patriots scenario and the Loyalists scenario will help students with understanding. Collaborate with your school library media specialist to implement this lesson.
