Paul Revere In Primary Sources




Bring colonial Boston, the Revolution, and the history of the early American republic to life for your students with this new curriculum packet! Beautiful facsimiles of nine primary sources related to Revere and ten transcriptions (one of the originals has been lost) are published here for the first time for classroom use. Documents include an intriguing newspaper ad for Revere’s services as a dentist, a loving letter Revere wrote to his wife while fighting in the Revolution, and a gruesome report Revere wrote as the county coroner. For each document, you will find a background essay which sets the source in context, a glossary, focusing questions to help your students analyze the document, suggestions for further research, and ideas for creative writing assignments. The packet features full color copies of portraits of Paul and Rachel Revere and a view of Boston, a black-and-white period map, a timeline of Revere’s life, bibliography, and Revere family genealogy. For grades 5-12. 76 pp, three-hole punched (binder not included) and shrink wrapped
