Product Description
Students will dig deep into the content of the American Revolution in order to respond to the question: Was the American Revolution actually revolutionary?

Students will begin this lesson by completing a Concept of Definition Map about "Revolution" to help organize the essential ideas and supporting details of the concept.

Next, they will examine and explore four documents including a background essay and three primary source documents to determine whether they agree/disagree that the American Revolution was revolutionary.

The American revolutionaries and the Founding Fathers of the United States
sought to create a nation without the shackles of the rigid social hierarchy that existed in Europe. Although the American Revolution succeeded in establishing a new nation that was built on the principles of personal freedom and democracy, scholars today continue to debate whether or not the American Revolution was truly all that revolutionary.

A "Prep Work" will then be used to guide students in the final step, writing an essay using all of the documents.
