Product Description
World History American Revolution Activity / Quiz / Teaching Enlightenment Unit



The creation of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution are the pinnacle of the Enlightenment. In order to teach this effectively I make sure to reference this throughout the Enlightenment Unit as I go through each one of the philosophers. In this easy to use lesson I use a couple of difference items to make sure that the students completely understand how the American Revolution was influenced by the Enlightenment.

Here is what I am including:

1. DIRECT TEACHING PRESENTATION: The direct teaching portion of this can be posted on a website for school or gone through directly with the students. I have my students read this in conjunction with their book which is around 4-5 pages of information. I decided to pull the questions and use them in the slide show as I made the questions RED and the answers to the questions in BOLD.

2. JOHN GREEN CRASH COURSE: John Green does a great job of summarizing a lot of the points that I want to emphasize but in a much faster and more organized way. I use this video for my bonus question and as a good way to wrap things up before the quiz.


3. QUIZ: This is a 5 question quiz that goes with the reading and also includes the answer key.

4. FOLLOW UP ACTIVITY: This is a fun way to talk about the American Revolution as I go over the first one with the students and then have them work in pairs to answer the rest of the questions.
