Tips: What Helps Learning?

Seeing How History Changes

Most links place historical facts in a table so you can easily compare them. You are not memorizing all of the facts placed in these tables. Instead, you are using those facts to notice changes and patterns. To help you, most links provide tips on what to notice.


·         Notice how the events prior to 1763 could be signs that no revolution would occur or that one would occur.

·         Why did boycotting British products get Parliament to change?

·         How did boycotting build an infrastructure for revolution?

·         Notice the vulnerability and assets of the new United States.

·         Notice the two major battles of Saratoga and Yorktown.

·         Notice Washington’s approach to the war.

Revolution in Action – Source for Major Issues on the War and Peace – Tip: You only need the whole thing if you are interesting at looking at the larger issues and specific battles or if you want to think about why people like the Patriots win wars.
