Transcript of Causes of the American Revolution Analogies

Darn Parents
Troublesome Friends
Your parents are concerned that you are hanging out with troublesome older friends. They tell you to stay away and avoid these friends.
How do you respond?
You start to play in a really cool tree house near your backyard with your troublesome friends. Your friends tell you that the tree house belongs to them, but your Dad disagrees. He says that it lies within your family’s property and belongs to your family. Your friends disagree and begin to pick on you every time you try to enter the tree house. One day your dad sees this and kicks all your troublesome friends out of the tree house.
Tree House Problem
Your parents banish you from the tree house. They tell you to stay out of the tree house so as to avoid all future problems with your troublesome friends.
Do you stay out?
Fence Issue
Your parents take away your allowance so they can build a big fence to keep all your troublesome friends out of the tree house.
How do you respond?
Your parents agree to give you your allowance back. But just to show you who’s the boss, they tell you that you will have to start paying money to play your video games and use your cell phone.
Pay to Play??
How do you respond?
Your parents tell you that you can play video games again, but you can only play games that your parents select. The game that your parents have selected is called “Rock Band: Justin Bieber”
Video Game Situation
How do you respond?
Bieber Mania
You destroyed your family’s copy of “Rock Band: Justin Bieber.” Your mom freaks out. It was her favorite game. She banishes you to your room, takes away your allowance and cell phone. She also disables the internet connection so you have no way of communicating with your friends. You are no longer allowed to leave the house under any circumstances until the game is repaid for. You must also apologize to your parents and prove your commitment to the family by singing all of Justin Bieber’s songs out loud in the front yard.
How do you respond?
iPod Threat!
Your parents discover that you have hidden an iPod touch and a cell phone in your closet. They heard you tapping out a text message and playing an iPod game one night. Your sister tells you that she heard your parents whispering to each other. She said it sounded like they plan to sneak into your room early in the morning and take your last prize possessions.
How do you respond?
iPod Threat = Lexington & Concord
Video Game Situation = Tea Act
How did the colonists respond?
You start to play in a really cool tree house near your backyard with your troublesome friends. Your friends tell you that the tree house belongs to them, but your Dad disagrees. He says that it lies within your family’s property and belongs to your family. Your friends disagree and begin to pick on you every time you try to enter the tree house. One day your dad sees this and kicks all your troublesome friends out of the tree house.
Treehouse Problem = French & Indian War
= Navigation Acts

How did the colonists respond?
Bieber Mania = Coercive Acts
Pay to Play = Townshend Acts
Your parents are concerned that you are hanging out with troublesome older friends. They tell you to stay away and avoid these friends.
Did the colonists stay out?
Proclamation of 1763:
The British drew a line down the Appalachians and told the Americans to stay out (they thought this would prevent future conflicts)
I have to reveal a secret: This was all an Analogy
All of the Parent-Child Scenarios are representing a real historical dilemma
Can you guess which historical situation corresponds with each parent-child scenario?
Troublesome Friends
The British did not want the American colonists to trade with other countries. They could only buy things from Great Britain and sell things to Great Britain
The British (and American colonists) battled the French and their Indian allies for control of the interior of the continent
The British sent troops over to the colonies to protect the Americans. They created a tax to help cover the cost of these soldiers.
The British withdrew the Stamp Act after protests, but eventually passed the Townshend Acts as a way to tax luxury goods and maintain discipline over the colonies.
The British withdrew all of the parts of the Townshend acts except for the one on Tea. This tax angered the colonists because it allowed the British East India Company to monopolize the Tea market in the colonies
The Coercive Acts intended to punush the colonists for the Boston Tea Party. The Acts closed the port of Boston until the tea was paid for, eliminated town meetings, removed judges from the colonies, and set strict curfews
The British realized that the Americans were stockpiling weapons. They sought to sneak out of Boston in the middle of the night to capture a supply of arms in Concord.
