Colonial Broadsides and the American Revolution. [Lesson Plan].
The history and literature program described in this lesson plan uses research on broadsides to help students experience news as the American colonists heard it. Broadsides were notices written on disposable, single sheets of paper printed on one side only, intended to have an immediate impact on readers. During three 45-minute classes, students will: list important events leading to the American Revolution in chronological order; and discuss the connections between broadsides and the American Revolution. Suggested activities; lesson extensions; standards alignment; a list of related websites; a selected list of broadsides; a broadsides analysis worksheet; and an American Revolution timeline are included.
