How can reading affect the way we write?
The key is to always read like a writer. By noticing how phrases and sentences are constructed, we can gain a better sense of what the author is attempting to convey. As a reader, we might feel suspense, pleasure, frustration, or even sadness. But as a writer, we can see how the author manages to successfully evoke those emotions.

How did ideas of self-government lead to the American Revolution?
The founding fathers of the United States all belonged to the same intellectual movement in the 18th century known as “The Enlightenment.” This explosive period of ideas and new philosophical trends led the American colonists at the time to reject the rule of the absolute monarch of Great Britain. For them, governance through consent of the governed was a universal truth, and one that had never been practiced before in the world. As economic pressure through taxes and other repressive acts mounted and explicit indifference from the British government endured, violent revolution became the only clear solution for self-governance.
