You have to love history to teach American literature!
While most students have some pre-knowledge of the American Revolutionary War, you should review with students some of the main causes.
This is important to do as the literature mainly taught during this time period revolves around the war which dominated this era.
The introductory PowerPoint consists of 18 slides and introduces the following three items:
American Revolutionary War
Age of Reason causes and characteristics
Ben Franklin quick lesson
Students simply take notes on the information you the teacher deem to be important to your unit.
