Since US History does not change very much, many teachers use textbooks to teach US History, ignoring the other available resources. To get teachers and students to abandon the textbook and utilize other sources, I compiled primary sources to teach about the battles and events of the American Revolution. To begin the unit, students will receive an introduction to the causes of the war from their teacher. Then, the students will analyze primary sources related to the battles and events of the war. They will compile this information into a comprehensive timeline with specific requirements. Depending on time and teacher discretion, students could write an essay using one of the two essential questions for this lesson to demonstrate the information learned from the primary sources. All worksheets, PowerPoints, and rubrics are included in the zip folder.
