Compartmentalization is an excellent and underused educational tool. This assignment will force students to organize the events of the political revolutions (English, American and French) in two different ways: chronologically and geographically. They will not only reorganize each event by the country where it occurred, but they will then put all of the events in order so they can see how they work off of each other.
This is a great cumulative assignment as students will revisit each of the major events of all three revolutions and physically organize them on paper. In doing so, it will help them organize the complex cause-and-effect relationships in their minds.
