This primary source letter from Hector St. Jean de Crevecoeur beautifully describes what it means to be an American - in 1782!
Crevecoeur was a French immigrant to America and vividly describes early American life, including what made Americans unique compared to the European cultures he experienced.
This download features a 1-page excerpt from his much longer letter so that you students can focus on his most important points on America in 1782. And you get both printable and Google Drive versions
in one download!
Following the reading is a set of open-ended analysis questions to get your students to think critically about Crevecoeur's fantastic letter. An answer key for this is included for your convenience.
The Google Docs version is great for paperless classrooms as students can type their responses directly onto the answer sheet. The printable PDF is the same worksheet but ready to print and use in your class. Both versions are included here!
