3 Essential Questions Was the American War for Independence inevitable? Certain to happen; unavoidableWhat was the cause of the American Revolution?
4 Causes of the Revolution We’ll be looking at the years from ~1700 to ~1775Be taking note of the different political, economic, and social happenings that would cause the colonists’ to move toward revolution
5 Revolutions What is a revolution? What do you know? Discuss in a group of twoDoes it always involve war?Can one be on a small scale?Can one happen over a long period of time?Is a revolution only political? Only social? Only economic?Write your answers in your journalWhat do you know?What do you want to know?
6 Please get with TWO other people who share a last initial with you. Students will understand the Navigation ActsPlease get with TWO other people who share a last initial with you.If no one does or you only have a group of two, stand in the middle-front of the room until I pair you up with a third partner
7 Imagine this scenario...For the Food Bowl next year, ALL donations must go through Principal Gaines to be counted/approvedThink through this scenario with the partners I gave youWhat could possibly go wrong?What are the potential benefits?How would classes feel about this?Why would Principal Gaines want that specific power?
8 Mercantilism Whatever is in bold...copy down A nation’s goal was to be as self sufficient as possible and have a positive balance of tradedidn’t want to have to rely on any other nation for anythingwanted all the gloryget more than you giveTo achieve this goal empires conquered lands, created colonies, produced staple agricultural productsnotebooks full of paper!!!Colonies existed only for the sake, welfare, enrichment of the mother country. Forbidden to trade with the enemy.This was the logic of the imperial era.
9 Navigation ActsThe Navigation Acts required all of a colony's imports to be either bought from England or resold by English merchants in England, no matter what price could be obtained elsewhere.This meant that everything had to go through England. (Remember the point of a colony?)Think about all of those cash crops, lumber, furs, fish, etc.
10 Take a guess: Why is this war called the French and Indian War? Students will understand the nature of and effects of the French and Indian War.Entry Task:Take a guess: Why is this war called the French and Indian War?*HW: read pp in your textbook by Monday*
11 Historical Impact of the Nav. Acts Some historians argue that the Nav Acts negatively impacted colonists’ financially.Others, however, argue that the economic impact was pretty small but it caused significant political friction.Ex: Principal Gaines, Food Bowl donations
12 What’s in a name? Seven Years War French and Indian War British historiansFrench and Indian WarAmerican historians (for the most part)Anglo-French rivalryCanadian historiansLa guerre de la Conquete (War of the Conquest)French Canadians

22 Get out your blue chart and notes Students will understand the effects of the French and Indian WarGet out your blue chart and notes
23 Please get out a half-sheet of paper. Goal: To understand the nature and effects of the French and Indian WarEntry Task:Please get out a half-sheet of paper.Sharing is caring.
24 Role of Native Americans French entered friendship with local Huron IndiansFrench learned their language, customs, lived side by side with themIroquois, the enemy of the Huron, would ally with English b/c of thisIroquois were made up of Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga and Seneca nations and later the Tuscarora.
26 Native-European “Friendship” From the three following passagesTake notes (don’t copy word for word)Write what you learn about friendship between:Natives and FrenchNatives and British
27 Native friendship with the French In North America the French and Indian War changed the future of the continent and impacted many cultures: English, American, French, Canadian, Huron, Algonquian, Iroquois, etc. Each side, French and British, found allies in Native Americans. The French usually got along with Native Americans because they did not threaten the Native American way of life. In fact, French traders had lived among the Indians for years and had married into their culture. They learned to respect native traditions and did not destroy the land where Native Americans hunted – because fur trade, not farming, was New France’s main source of income. Many Algonquian-speaking nations allied themselves with the French, including the Miami, Ottawa, Potawatomi, Ojibwa, Menominee, Huron, Shawnee, pro-French Seneca, and Delaware allies at Monongahela River.
28 Native friendship with the British The British allied themselves with the Iroquois Confederacy or Haudenosaunee (hou-DE-noh-sah-nee). The Iroquois nations: Seneca, Mohawk, Oneida, Cayuga, Onondaga, and later the Tuscarora, had formed a strong alliance in which each nation pledged to protect the others. This alliance made the Iroquois very powerful. It protected them from outside enemies but ensured them of internal peace. Once a year, each nation sent representatives to a council, where concerns were addressed and voted upon. The League’s constitution was written in symbols of unity on a beaded wampum belt. The nations inhabited western New York, which included all the major trade routes of the region and stretched from Niagara Falls to Albany, New York, from New England to Ohio. The Iroquois had been enemies of the French since Samuel de Champlain sided against them by joining forces with the Huron in battles against them in In 1754, the British government asked the Iroquois to side with them. At first, the Iroquois refused. They pointed out that the British and French were fighting over Iroquois land, but when the French and British began to fight in their forests, the Iroquois were pulled in.
29 Native-British friendship, continued The British were able to get the aid of the Iroquois with the help of William Johnson, an English fur trader, who settled in the Mohawk Valley. The Mohawk called him Warraghiyagey (war-rag-ee-YAH-gay), which means “Doer of Great Things.” He was married twice to Mohawk women. Through his marriages, Johnson became so influential that he was made a minor British nobleman and commissioned “Colonel of the Six Nations.” Johnson called a meeting of the Iroquois Confederacy, where he promised the nations that their land would be protected. He tried very hard to honor that promise, but others did not.
30 Albany Congress (1754) Native-Brit friendship Mass, NH, Conn, RI, NY, Penn, and MDCalled leaders from all the colonies to meet in Albany to discuss Native “problem” and meet with Iroquois.British sought to make allies; gave many gifts (including guns) -- Iroquois refused to commit themselves to the BritishPurpose: Indian affairs, coordinate col. military operations, & forming new colonies in western territoriesLong-range effect: greater colonial unity; strong defense against France.
31 Benjamin Franklin “Join or Die” Meant to encourage each Colony to join the cause of the British.If one part bails out, the whole animal will die.
32 Results of the war British got most of French territory Colonies’ dreams of expanding westward were now in reachColonists learned how to fightColonies unified for first timeBritish in massive debtResentment in Parliament*
34 Proclamation of 1763British declared colonists could not move into the land they just won from FrenchKing said it was to calm Native worriesColonists thought it was because the King could control them more easily if they were just kept close to the coast.
35 Thesis statement What is a thesis statement? · Thesis statements are a 1 or 2 sentence argument. They establish the point of view the writer is taking, and the focus of the paper.· Thesis statements set the mood for the paper, and they prepare the reader for facts and details, which you will provide as evidence for your thesis.A Thesis Statement can NEVER be a question! It should be the answer to the question.
36 Thesis continuedWhere are thesis statements located?Thesis statements are generally found in the introduction, or opening paragraph, of a research paper. In addition, thesis statements are often restated in the conclusion, or last paragraph.A few general guidelines·The thesis statement does not have to be long or complicated. ·The thesis statement must be supported by using sufficient evidence in your paper. ·The thesis statement can appear anywhere in the opening paragraph, however, it is most likely to be the first or last sentence.
37 Thesis continuedAn example to followA thesis statement that is too general serves no purpose! Always keep the statement specific. Two examples:Too General:“The American Revolution had political and economic causes.”Revised:“British policies such as the Sugar, Tea, and Townshend Acts angered the North American colonists because they thought of them as violations of the tradition of salutary neglect, and as a violation of their political rights as Englishmen. Britain’s political and economic crackdown following the French and Indian War was the most important factor contributing to the American Revolution.”

39 Students will understand how the Sugar Act and Stamp Act demonstrated the end of salutary neglect.Agenda:Check HomeworkSalutary NeglectSugar ActStamp ActWeekendsLetter from Randy Dorn
40 Salutary Neglect Salutary: beneficial, having good effects Neglect: being ignored or disregardedThe colonies were given a decent amount of freedom to do as they pleasedIn return, they supported the “mother country” by supplying her with raw materials to be manufactured
41 1763--A shift happens What was the shift? How would the colonists react?
42 The context leading up the Rev. War British in debt from F&I Warnational debt had doubled, from approximately £70 million to £140 million½ of debt due to protection of coloniesBritish wanted colonists to pay 1/3 of maintaining a garrison of 7,500 British soldiers to protect against Native uprisingsCost of administering Britain's North American colonies skyrocketed with acquisition of new landGeorge Grenville--new British Prime Minister under which salutary neglect ended
43 Sugar Act – April 1764“it is just and necessary that a revenue should be raised ... for defraying the expenses of defending, protecting, and securing” the coloniesFirst act passed to raise revenue for crownAimed to regulate trade by collecting a tax that colonists had not paid for yearsReduced taxes on molasses but taxed all molassesNot enforced effectively
44 Stamp ActPurpose – Raise $ to support the new military force in colonies (George Grenville)March 1765Provisions: Official stamps on paper would serve as proof of paymentTax applied to published materials and legal documents ex: pamphlets, newspapers, diplomas, marriage cert, death cert.Affected all colonists
46 Thursday 1.9: Review the Boston Massacre and practice using primary sources Entry Task:Please create a Frayer Model on a blank sheet of paper. (Reminder of the format below)
47 PropagandaDefiniton: ideas or statements that are often false or exaggerated and that are spread in order to help a cause, a political leader, a government, etc.Top left quadrant of your frayer model: Write this definition and then put it into your own words with the help of one neighbor.
48 Top right quadrant: Examples (you’ll need three) Something that stretches the truth to make you want a product, a person to be the political leader, or to follow a cause, etc.Trash talking another person to make your self/your cause look betterManipulating information to make something look better. Omitting facts, etc.
50 Bottom left quadrant: Non-Examples (you’ll need two) informative brochure stating all perspectives on Marijuana usea political brochure explaining for AND against positions on different ballot measuresetc.
51 Bottom right quadrant: Illustration Drawing of what you understand propaganda to beAnything that helps you understand the conceptAnything that shows that you understand the concept
52 Boston Massacre Review March 5, 1770Boston, MassachusettsRoyal troops had been growing in # in this region to enforce acts (specfically Townshend Acts)(4,000 soldiers to 20,000 Boston residents!)Not called Boston Massacre until 1773 when Paul Revere used the term5 men died
57 The first depiction of the event by Henry Pelham
58 Discussion Questions While there are many similarities in the engravings by Henry Pelham and Paul Revere, there are also significant differences. Carefully examine both documents and explain how they differ. Consider both the image of the event and the text at the top and bottom of both documents.
59 2. Revere’s document was well known at the time while Pelham’s was less regarded. Over the years, Revere’s painting has gained notoriety and has been frequently reproduced in textbooks and popular publications. How can this be explained?3. Why has this image been referred to frequently as a work of propaganda?
60 HomeworkAdd to your Frayer Model examples, non-examples, and your illustration of what propaganda is.Come to class tomorrow with a full and complete Frayer Model on propaganda.
