Name______________________________________ Per_________ Due Date____________ Ch. 8 Reading Guide: Road to Revolution (pg. 141-163) Learning Targets Target # 1: I can identify examples of how the British attempted to reassert control over its colonies, and list examples of colonial reactions, and list the political, social and economic issues faced by American colonists as they tried to form the new American Republic. Target # 2: I can explain (using historical thinking skills) how the British attempted to reassert control over its colonies, and explain (using historical thinking skills) colonial reactions to this attempted control, and describe the political, social and economic issues faced by American colonists as they tried to form the new American Republic. Big Ideas : Though initially asking Britain to simply listen to colonial grievances, Britain’s unwillingness to meet colonial demands created a larger push for independence As the United States grew in its infancy, Republicanism combined with Enlightenment ideals played a crucial role in the formation of America’s government. France’s role in the American Revolutionary War was critical to the United States’ victory. The Treaty of Paris (1783) not only changed the physical landscape of the former colonies, but its relationship with European nations as well. Prediction Statement (50 words or less): What is one prediction you have about what you will learn based on the big ideas above? I predict that I will be reading about the impact the French had on the American Revolution and how the revolution impacted colonial America.
