PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This two unit bundle covers US history from the end of the French & Indian War through the Treaty of Paris, ending the Revolutionary War. This is a “warts and all” examination of this period of history; it is both a story of triumph and tragedy as well as one of heroes and villains – some of whom were both, depending on how one looks at them. Both units are based upon and complement my textbook, “We Take Nothing by Conquest”, and are designed for both the novice and experienced classroom teacher as each contains everything needed for the full course, including the textbook. All the included materials have been extensively field tested in my own eighth grade classroom.

The first unit, a 15 day complete unit, entitled “The Road to Revolution,” examines the events which led the 13 colonies to engage in open, armed rebellion against their mother country, England. It begins in 1763 at the end of the French and Indian War and culminates with the battles at Lexington and Concord. Students will learn the actions and reactions of the colonies and England, the conflicting economic and political theories between the two sides upon which the dispute was based, and the motivation, both noble and selfish, which fueled the colonists’ actions.

The materials for this first unit – all of which have been battle-tested in the crucible of my own 8th grade classroom - include:
*a 61 page Teacher’s Guide which provides day-by-day and step-by-step instructions how to teach the unit and use all of the materials;
*30 pages of informative and interesting text, divided into six chapters (the complete fourth unit of the textbook);
*an inquiry based study guide for each chapter to focus students on the main points and supporting details;
*quizzes for each chapter;
*PowerPoints with answers to the study guides for review, and including pictures and maps to stimulate discussion and enhance understanding;
*Cloze activities for two of the chapters;
*an interactive simulation activity for one chapter concerning mercantilism;
*a Road to Revolution Flow Chart activity to further enhance student learning by helping them organize the chapter information;
*a Road to Revolution Newspaper/Game Board project, complete with instructions, a newspaper writing guide, and a sample newspaper;
*a Boston Massacre Trial Activity;
*a PowerPoint Quiz Show review game;
* a Road to Revolution board game for use as review;
*a test prep study guide;
*and a unit test.

The second unit, a 16 day complete unit entitled “War and Independence,” covers the American Revolutionary War and the decision to declare independence from England. It covers the political, military and economic history of the war itself, from the Battle of Bunker Hill to the Treaty of Paris, takes a close look at the Declaration of Independence and its author, Thomas Jefferson, and examines the role of and war’s effect on African-Americans, Native Americans, and women.

The materials for this second unit – all of which have been battle-tested in the crucible of my own 8th grade classroom - include:
*a 71 page Teacher’s Guide which provides day-by-day and step-by-step instructions how to teach the unit and use all of the materials;
*41 pages of informative and interesting text, divided into eight chapters (the complete fifth unit of the textbook);
*an inquiry based study guide for each chapter to focus students on the main points and supporting details;
*quizzes for each chapter;
*PowerPoints with answers to the study guides for review, and including pictures and maps to stimulate discussion and enhance understanding;
*a Cloze activity for one of chapter;
*a fun board game activity for one chapter concerning the impact of the War on African-Americans;
*a primary source document activity examining the Declaration of Independence;
* a primary source activity examining speeches made by and to native tribes concerning their involvement in the war;
*a critical thinking exercise examining whether or not Jefferson was a hypocrite for owning slaves while writing the words “All men are created equal;”
*a Revolutionary War Battle Map project, complete with instructions and a sample map;
*a PowerPoint Quiz Show review game;
*a test prep study guide;
*and two versions of the unit test (one which includes an essay of whether or not Jefferson was a hypocrite, and one which does not).

Answer keys and grading guides for all study guides, activities, quizzes, and projects are included in the Teacher’s Guide. Materials are provided as word documents and PDFs in one zip file.
