    This youtube video gives students a great perspective on reasons for the American Revolution. It is a parody of the song "Its Too Late." I think your students will love this video!

Coming of the American Revolution - 27 views

  •  
    This is an interactive website from the Massachusetts Historical Society.

    What a great site Bob. Thank you for sharing. I am certain I can use this site for ideas in the classroom!
  •  
    I worked on it this summer. I especially recommend the docs for "non-consumption and non-importation" (the word boycott did not exist yet!). They are very student friendly and can be used in a U.S. history or world history class and can easily connect with boycotts today.

    Overall, this site could be used as an exemplar for other historical societies to follow: Intro to the whole site, intro to each topic, intro to each subtopic with questions, intro to each document with questions, a facsimile of each document, and a transcription.

    Fyi and fwiw, the Mass Historical Society will be hosting a Landmarks Institute this summer through NEH so U.S. teachers might want to apply:
