In this example, students identify what led up to the revolution, framing the context for the revolt:

What? So What? Now What?
What led to the colonists’ revolt against Britain? Why was this revolt important? What effect has the American Rev had on the U.S. and Britain?
One reason is increasing numbers of immigrants from other nations. It led to the foundation and formation of the United States. The U.S. and Britain have since been very strong allies.

How did this strategy work for you?
