His121 Learning Objectives Unit 2 Chapter 4 TSW explain how “patriotism,” a “balanced constitution,” “virtue” and political representation each played a role in building the British definition of “liberty” during the eighteenth century. TSW define The Enlightenment, list its assumptions, explain its connection to the Glorious Revolution, and assess its impact on England’s American colonies. TSW summarize the effects of the Great Awakening on religious beliefs and practices in England’s American colonies. TSW identify the Albany Congress and interpret its implications for the defense of Britain’s American colonies. TSW analyze the French and Indian War for its long-term effects relative to the American Revolution. TSW identify Pontiac’s uprising and the Proclamation of 1763, explaining the British view of the need to maintain a military presence in America. TSW define all chapter vocabulary. Chapter 5 TSW place America’s Revolutionary War into a broader context of ongoing international politics and the evolution of the “rights of Englishmen.” TSW compare and contrast the views of American colonists towards Parliament from the time of the English Civil War to the outbreak of the American Revolution. TSW list and evaluate the growing causes of the Revolutionary War: regulation of trade and underwriting colonial defense (key components of mercantilism) vs. “taxation without representation” (“virtual representation,” Thomas Paine’s Common Sense, Stamp and Sugar acts, Townshend Acts, Tea Act, Coercive Acts). TSW summarize the nature of colonial resistance prior to the Revolutionary War and evaluate each action for its effectiveness: committees of correspondence, non-consumption and non-importation agreements, the Suffolk Resolves, the Stamp Act Congress, the First Continental Congress, skirmishes at Lexington and Concord, Mass. TSW analyze the 1775-1783 American Revolution for its key events: the importance of each, and how each contributed to the eventual outcome. TSW explain the changes in British military strategy during the Revolutionary War, and the resulting shifts in theaters of operation. TSW analyze the Declaration of Independence for its meaning, the precedents it set, and its relationship to Enlightenment thought. TSW compare and contrast the strength and weaknesses of American and British forces as each entered into a war for/war against American independence. TSW summarize the key terms of the 1783 Treaty of Paris TSW define all chapter vocabulary. Chapter 6 TSW analyze the American Revolution for the impact it had on American society: economic freedom, the right to vote, the role of religion, the role of women, the institution of slavery, and the presence of Native Americans. TSW explain the importance of “republican motherhood,” and why this was a particularly “American” development within post-revolutionary American society. TSW analyze the “revolution within” in terms of the conflict between freedom and equality, and between merit and social rank in early American society. TSW explain why America’s first states are referred to as “laboratories of democracy.” TSW compare and contrast the early “complex” and “simple” forms of state governments, and summarize the motivations, strengths and weaknesses with each. TSW define all chapter vocabulary. Chapter 7 TSW evaluate the Articles of Confederation for effectiveness: its form, functions, achievements, and ability to balance individual liberties with the need for national unity. TSW explain the challenges of settling the Western Lands, and the way in which the Northwest Ordinances of 1784, 1785 and 1787 met these challenges. TSW summarize Shays’ Rebellion (1786-1787) and explain its political impact on early America. TSW trace the origin of the American Constitution: the definition of “constitution,” the influence of John Locke, structure, powers, and how it improved shortcomings of the Articles of Confederation. TSW summarize the federalist and anti-federalist arguments in the debate to ratify the U.S. Constitution. TSW explain the purpose and origin of the Bill of Rights. TSW explain the meaning of “separation of functions” and “constitutional authority,” and why these issues were important to the framers of the United States Constitution. TSW interpret the Virginia Declaration of Rights (1776) and the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom (1786) for their impact on the freedom of religious expression. TSW define all chapter vocabulary.
