The Continental Congress was responsible for proposing solutions to the innumerable problems that coincided with revolution. Readers will study the key players of the Continental Congress, the problems they faced, and how they worked together to create solutions. This book fosters critical thinking by asking readers to consider what those problem-solving methods were, and how they might be applied to contemporary issues. They'll be asked to examine the efficacy of certain methods and analyze how methods have changed or remained the same over time.
