Causes of the American Revolution

Background Causes of the American Revolution Differentiated Instruction Lesson Plan

Background Causes of the American Revolution

The “Background Causes of the American Revolution” differentiated instruction lesson plan uses a PowerPoint for the mini-lesson to deliver the content. It consists of five economic factors and five political factors. Each of the background causes is explained in the PowerPoint. An example of what to expect on each slide is provided below for the Triangle Trade. The economic factors are:

  • Mercantilism
  • Favorable Balance of Trade
  • Triangular Trade
  • —Triangular Trade: A trade between the America’s, Europe and Africa combining European capital (in the first leg) with African labor (in the second) and British-colony resources (in the third):
    *—From Europe – manufactured goods: copper, textiles, silks imported from Asia, glassware, ammunition, guns, knives and other finished products.
    —In Africa, sailors unloaded European goods and filled the ships with indigo and human cargo: men, women and children.

    *—The “middle passage” brought the newly enslaved Africans to the Americas or to Caribbean islands.

    —*At least ten percent of the captives died en route due to unbelievably bad conditions. When the ships encountered fierce weather, casualties were higher.

    *—From the America’s: raw materials, returned to Europe. Sugar, coffee, tobacco and – especially – cotton were processed in British factories. Those materials provided workers with jobs and business owners with profits.
  • Rise of an influential business community in the colonies
  • Cost of colonial wars against the French
Causes of the American Revolution

Economic Factors were Background Causes of the American Revolution

The Political factors are:

  • The role of the British Civil War
  • Periods of political freedom in the colonies
  • Impact of the French and Indian War
  • Political thought of the Enlightenment
  • New social relationships between European powers and the American colonies
Causes of the American Revolution

Political Factors including the Albany Plan of Union were background causes of the American Revolution
