The Other Boston Tea Party. Teacher's Guide.
Rosal, Lorenca Consuelo; And Others
A teachers' guide is presented that accompanies the video production of "The Other Boston Tea Party," a play used to teach about the U.S. Constitution and American legal and political systems. The play combines a comedy of manners with an historical approach to the issues surrounding the Federalist/Anti-Federalist debate over ratification of the Constitution. In creating a warm but confrontational friendship between aging Revolutionary War populist--Samuel Adams--and the rising young statesman--Harrison Gray Otis, the play creates characters who illuminate the often passionately held issues of the era. The guide is divided into three parts: (1) the introduction, which includes suggestions for teachers and historical background material; (2) a detailed section paralleling the 10 scenes of the play and its prologue; and (3) appendices with special teaching tips, the complete glossary, and an index to activities.
