Description

What was the Market Revolution? What was the American System? What changes took place in the early 1800s and how did these changes affect nationalism and sectionalism? Students will use guided notes & a gallery to walk to learn about big changes in America during the Market Revolution and use of Henry Clay's American System.

Help students think about how changes like factory production, immigration, the National Road, the Erie Canal, locomotives, and the cotton gin contributed to growing nationalism or sectionalism using these notes and stations!

This PDF Activity includes:

  • Brief introductory notes on the Market Revolution, American System, nationalism, and sectionalism (includes page with key vocabulary + images for students to analyze)
  • 3-page guided notes student handout
  • 9 gallery walk stations on the Market Revolution
    5-page student handout for the gallery walk

Check out the preview!

Students will be prompted to think about how technological and economic changes in the early 1800s contributed both to nationalism and sectionalism.

I used this in my U.S. History course with 10th grade students to introduce some major economic, social, and political changes of the 1820s. I used this activity as an introduction to other Antebellum Unit lessons on sectionalism, the Nullification Crisis, the Abolitionist Movement, conflict over the role of the federal government and westward expansion.
