U.S. History – Week 11


Our focus this week in US History is “the road to revolution.” We’ll take a look at a few of the events that historians usually point to when they are attempting to explain the causes of the American Revolution.




Two of the Essential Questions that we will seek to answer during this unit include:

How did events from our twelve categories of issues contribute towards the distinct identity and independence of the United States prior to the revolution?

How do the commonly discussed “causes” of the American revolution affect
our perspective of history and our approach to present day events?
