The iBook is designed as a preparation exercise for both Canadian and American students studying the American Revolution. Students are randomly assigned a character; and in character, look at the causes of the revolution. Based on evidence, the learner decides if their character would support the cause or not. Students must employ historical and critical thinking skills, while looking at the events leading up to the revolution, to make an informed decision. This work includes numerous primary documents and interactive elements. A teacher’s guide accompanies the resource with a few suggested activities. 1776: Should I Stay or Go? is designed to complement resources while encouraging the students to think like an historian. This is a beta edition.
