A comprehensive unit on this period of US History!

Students develop important inferencing, application, analysis, and evaluation skills. The document-based questions and activities (DBQs) help them learn that people interpret events from differing points of view. War to Constitution: Using Primary Sources to Teach U.S. History covers these American history topics: the Sons of Liberty, the Stamp Act, the Boston Tea Party, the Boston Massacre, Common Sense, Valley Forge, John Paul Jones, Paying for the War, the Articles of Confederation, and many more.

Background material for each topic is provided and a variety of primary sources are shown. Think About It Activities, which present challenging activities to promote critical-thinking, follow the background material. Complete transcripts of some of the larger documents are included in the Appendix.

Comprehensive answers and additional background information are provided in the Answer Section.

The primary sources in this book provide materials for social-studies students to practice the skills required by the CCSS.
