A simple T-Chart SmartBoard Notebook file that requires students to find both supporting and opposing evidence for the key statement that Haitian independence was more progressive that the American Revolution. The chart can be used with John Green's Crash Course World History episode on Haitian Independence and/or the following web link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haitian_Revolution. Part of the lesson can be given over to research and the other to discussion of findings. This can be done as a group exercise or an individual assignment. It could also be used as a precursor to a written assignment on Haitian independence. The file is easily convertible to PDF if you wish to use it as a hard-copy handout. The exercise was designed for a 10th Grade pre-IB History of the Americas class but could be used with any Middle or High School grade level.
