The Institute’s classroom videos explore the era of the Revolutionary War with some of today’s leading—and most engaging—scholars in the field. These lectures and conversations cover fundamental themes of the American Revolution and its legacy, based in part on the Institute’s Revolutionary War literacy standards. Each video is available in full length as well as in shorter chapter segments, which are ideal for use in the classroom or to assign to students to watch on their own.
These video resources are divided into two series. The videos in the first series, America in Revolution, have been created specifically for classroom instruction and feature leading historians of the period discussing fundamental themes of the Revolution. The second series, Lectures in Liberty, captures presentations given by scholars at events the Institute sponsored at its headquarters and other venues across the country. Many of these talks highlight recently published scholarly works.
