Focusing on the Stamp Act riots, the Boston Massacre, and other incidents, lessons use documentary materials to examine the events that defined British colonial relations from 1763 to 1775. Easily modified for use in a variety of secondary classroom situations, the unit draws on testimony from court records, newspaper reports, private correspondence, Paul Revere’s engraving of the Boston Massacre, and contemporary cartoons. Students explore the causes of the American Revolution with a “you-are-there” approach.
