My Pick of the Week: April 24-28

My pick this week is Common Sense by Thomas Paine.

This book was written as a pamphlet explaining to the early Americans why they should revolt against Great Britain’s rule. Thomas Paine was one of the most influential founding fathers of America due to the widespread reading of his pamphlet. Students today can still learn a lot from Paine and his beliefs about government and people.
