This .zip package includes a PowerPoint that provides an overview of the major events preceding the American Revolution such as the French & Indian War, Stamp Act, Boston Tea Party, and First Continental Congress. Slides are color coded according to whether they include background information, British actions, or colonial reactions. The corresponding .doc graphic organizer is organized in the same manner, making it easy for students to take quality notes. The package also now includes a modified version of the graphic organizer that is fill-in-the-blank style for students struggling with note-taking.
