Product Description
This biography of the 18th century British monarch George III focuses on his attempt to preserve control over England's American colonies. Beginning with the Proclamation of 1763, which prohibited colonial settlements west of the Appalachian Mountains, the biography details increasing tensions between the colonies and the British government, including the Stamp Act, the Tea Act, and the Coercive Acts. When the colonies declared their independence in 1776, George III vowed to punish their resistance with a war that "promised to be eternal."

The biography includes a series of questions based on the reading.

In using this in my own class room, students are encouraged to:

1. Number the paragraphs

2. Read the biography

3. Highlight answers in the reading

4. Use complete sentences

The answer key demonstrates these steps.

You can also purchase the biography as part of a general series I have posted on TpT:Biographies in American History OR Biographies in World History.
