It may seem like a really long time ago and history related to America, but teaching the American Revolution is very important to a social studies curriculum, as it was a conflict that gave birth to a new form of government – democracy. This was radical thinking for the time, yet it’s shaped the world as we know it, even today. Here’s how to go about teaching it.
See the fact file below for more information on the Revolutionary War Curriculum or alternatively, you can download our 9-page Revolutionary War Curriculum worksheet pack to utilise within the classroom or home environment.
Key Facts & Information
Where to start
- You can dive right in with the American Revolution to understand
The conflict itself, followed by fleshing out key areas of tension,
figures, and actions.
- Alternatively, you can start right at The beginning with the
establishment of colonies under the rule of the British Empire and
work through tensions that led to war.
- For context, it’s important to address why the relationship between America and the Crown began to crumble in the late 1700s. This was primarily because of the debt Britain gained after the French and Indian War (the Seven Years’ War) (1756 and 1763) and the introduction of taxes.
- The American colonies objected to the taxes because of the matter of representation (or lack thereof) in British Parliament.
- To what extent did tensions and retaliations escalate? This is where you examine the Boston Tea Party, the Intolerable Acts, and the Boston Massacre.
- What thoughts and attitudes were circulating in the American colonies at the time? At this point in the curriculum, you can examine the organization called Sons of Liberty, as well as Thomas Paine, who wrote the pamphlet Common Sense, which went viral in its day.
- With the stage now set for war, next, move on to the famous ride of Paul Revere to Lexington and Concord to warn that the British were coming.
- Examine some of the first battles of the Revolutionary War followed by the establishment of the Second Continental Congress. What did it hope to achieve? What role did George Washington take on?
- Next up, what was the context that resulted in the Declaration of Independence? Who were the framers? What was this document and how did it shape the formation of the United States of America?
- What was the outcome of the war and what was detailed in the Treaty of Paris (1783)?
