  • This slide is just for your own notes, as a presenter or instructor. You may print these, memorize them, or actually put them into the Notes portion of a slide in your own presentation.
  • This slide is for display to the audience to show them how they will vote on your polls in your presentation. You can remove this slide if you like or if the audience is already comfortable with texting and/or voting with Poll Everywhere. Sample Oral Instructions: Ladies and gentlemen , throughout today’s meeting we’re going to engage in some audience polling to find out what you’re thinking, what you’re up to and what you know. Now I’m going to ask for your opinion. We’re going to use your phones to do some audience voting just like on American Idol. So please take out your cell phones, but remember to leave them on silent. You can participate by sending a text message. This is a just standard rate text message, so it may be free for you, or up to twenty cents on some carriers if you do not have a text messaging plan. The service we are using is serious about privacy. I cannot see your phone numbers, and you’ll never receive follow-up text messages outside this presentation. There’s only one thing worse than email spam – and that’s text message spam because you have to pay to receive it!

    • 11. Fighting Mad
      • In 1754 the British and French had gotten into a war in North America
        • Remember both the French and the Engligh had land over here
      • With the British victory came… the bill, someone had to pay for the war
      • Parliament decided that it should be the colonists who pay for it because they benefited from the war
    • 12. Fighting Mad
      • So without any representation or say in the new taxes passed by Britian, the colonists were being forced to pay off the British debt
      • The colonists were outraged, they had never paid taxes directly to the British government before
      • British citizens consented to taxes, and without any representation in Parliament, the colonists had no way to argue
    • 13. Fighting Mad
      • Eventually these taxes and a lack of voice in England brought the colonists to the breaking point, they would meet to discuss how to handle the situation

      • “ that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
      • Locke believe that people had right to rebel against an unjust ruler, which Jefferson proclaims that England had been
