Inquiry-based lesson materials drawing from the American Revolution Institute’s collections of rare books, manuscripts, portraits, and artifacts highlighting the American Revolution: our Independence, our Republic, our National Identity and our Highest Ideals—liberty, equality, natural and civil rights and responsible citizenship were shared with participants. The Institute’s student and teacher resources—which are free and readily accessible for synchronous or asynchronous leaning—were be introduced, including the online lessons created by our master teachers during their residential week at our library and museum in Washington, DC. Featured was a lesson designed by master teacher Anne Hester, a teacher at East Lee County High School near Fort Myers entitled “Diplomacy and Devotion: The Franco-American Alliance in the Age of Revolutions.”
