Students are asked to answer the question, "How did the Great Awakening influence the mindset of Colonial Americans?" using 4 sources. 3 are primary sources from the era, and 1 is an excerpt from a Journal Article by two modern historians.
This file comes with 2 options:
1) A traditional DBQ with 3 guiding questions per document to help the students toward their own thesis, with a page to record a quote that can be used as evidence in the essay.
2) A "Stations Packet" if the teacher wants this to be more of a classwork activity rather than an assessment. Each source has its own page and the students have 2 "passports" with the questions. This format is great for doing collaborative work on the documents.
**** Answer Key for all Questions is at the end of this file. *******
The purpose of this DBQ/activity, is to get the students thinking about how there was more of a mental mindset on the individual and personal conviction, which would eventually connect to some underlying reasons for the American Revolution.
