This is Part 1 of the fourth lesson in a series of seven lessons that teach American History in cycles. If you use them all, they could be your whole year of American History or they could supplement what you want to do in class. Whether you want to look at American history in cycles or not these lessons will have a ton of information, resources, activities, web-quests, assessments, etc that you could use in your history class. I have even narrated them so you could just put it on and let the students and my narration teach the class. These lessons are based on the theory of Strauss and Howe that history occurs in 80 to 100 year cycles which is explained in their book The Fourth Turning. This lesson is about the Revolutionary period from the early 1700's through the Revolution. This lesson takes the people and the events of this time period and relates them to the cyclical trends that Strauss and Howe have outlined. It is a new way to teach history.
