Attention teachers who are looking to have an American history class without a textbook! In “Note-Taking Guide for The American Revolution,” students will investigate the political manoeuvres behind America’s drive for independence, particularly American and British strengths and weaknesses; loyalists, fence sitters, and patriots; Lexington and Concord; Bunker Hill; the revolution on the home front; Washington at Valley Forge; the Battle of Saratoga; the French Alliance; Yorktown; and, finally the Treaty of Paris. All of this is done through an authoritative website, ushistory.org. Students are required to take jot notes on the historically significant events, individuals, and issues that have contributed to the shaping of this period in American history. This study guide naturally includes the web address upon which it has been based. Overall, this note-taking exercise has served as an excellent companion for students at both the grade school and high school levels and has acted as a wonderful tool in the writing of quizzes, tests, essays, reports, and exams.
