The Revolutionary War. It was over 200 years ago, but is it still relevant today?
One of the reasons we learn history is because the past is relevant to today, and it is in countless ways.
Many of you heard me discuss my trip to the Battle of Brandywine on Pennsylvania a few weeks ago. Some of my innovative (and intelligent) West Point classmates have a company to help develop leaders. Part of their process is to show how leaders of today can learn from the events of yesterday.
Your task: Look at the information from my tweets and from their promotional video. Then you might have to do some research about the Battle of Brandywine and the Revolutionary War on your own. What event, idea, or characteristic related to the battle could be useful for political, social, or military leaders today?
This reflection requires some research, critical thinking, and effort, and you will be proud of the connections you make. Each student should be making a unique connection, so make sure to read any other comments first. I look forward to reading these!
