PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The concept of "salutary or benign neglect" is one of the most interesting topics to explore when studying the causes of the American Revolution. This lesson plan will move your students far beyond "no taxation without representation" to a much more nuanced and historically accurate understanding of this important time in American history.

In this lesson, students will get into the mindset of American colonists in the late 18th century by contemplating a contemporary hypothetical relevant to modern students; define the phrase “salutary neglect” and its component words, then demonstrate their understanding of this vocabulary visually; analyze how the meanings of words change in when used independently versus in context with one another; and use evidence from a modern historian’s essay to make and support a claim regarding the assertion of British tyranny over the American colonies.

This lesson is aligned with the Common Core and National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) Standards. It also includes accommodations for English Language Learners (ESOL, EFL, ESL), exceptional education (ESE), and gifted students, as well as rubrics for grading.
