Help students develop a deeper understanding of the work that went into creating the Declaration of Independence through excerpts from the film 1776. In addition to promoting knowledge of ideas contained within the Declaration of Independence, it also serves as a review of events along the road to revolution. These excerpts can also serve as a springboard to understanding parliamentary procedure. Bring history to life by bringing students to the sidelines of one of the most pivotal moments in American history. Save yourself the time of paring down the full 2:45:00 of film and skip to the segments most relevant to a history or civics class.
