Examview testbanks with 57 questions to help you teach the American Revolution and Declaration of Independence using the fabulous movie musical, 1776
. Divided into logical movie sections for an easy 3-day lesson plan!
The movie "1776"
is great for teaching about the American Revolution and specifically the Declaration of Independence. These questions are designed to be used batch by batch as students finish watching portions of the movie -- or they can be used after the whole movie has been watched, as a final assessment.
I find that students are MUCH more attentive and on-task during a class movie if they know they will be assessed afterwards on the main ideas and important details in the film.
