  1. Warm up: Use the Comparison activity on p. 273 to complete questions 1-2 at the bottom of the page. Daily Learning Goal: I can apply Brinton’s model of a revolution to the English, American and French models.

  2. Brinton’s Model of Revolutions - England • The Six Stages of Revolution • End of the Old Model – Political change occurs due to a weak leader and some sort of social or economic crisis. • Rule by Moderates – Moderate ideas initially provide sufficient “change” • The Terror – Moderate ideas no longer are enough to please the radicals, who take power. • Examples from the English Revolution • Stage 1: Charles I overthrown at the start of the English Civil War. • Stage 2: During the Civil War Parliament fights against supporters of Charles and the monarchy. • Stage 3: Charles I is executed by Parliament during the English Civil War.

  3. Brinton’s Model of Revolutions - England • Turn from Radical Rule – people grow tired of continued radical change. • Military Rule – in order to stop the chaos, a military leader is chosen to rule • Restoration – The political set up present before the revolution returns. • Stage 4 – Oliver Cromwell is established as Lord Protectorate • Stage 5 – Cromwell rules as a military dictator, ending the English Civil War, but giving favors (land) to his military friends. • Stage 6 – English Parliament restores Charles II as the English Monarch; while the Glorious Revolution overthrew James II, William and Mary were installed as replacement monarchs.

  4. Brinton’s Model of Revolutions – U.S.A. • Apply Brinton’s Model to the United States using the following (chronological) events: • Continental Congress Established • Declaration of Independence Issued • Articles of Confederation created to establish powers of the government • End of Revolutionary War • Economic crisis due to war debts • Shays’ Rebellion – farmers resist the courts’ seizing their lands over unpaid debts. • Constitutional Convention • Ratification of the Constitution as the new governing document • Revolutionary War Hero, George Washington elected first President. • Ratification of the Bill of Rights

  5. Brinton’s Model of Revolutions – France • Working in your groups, identify the key events which occurred in each of Brinton’s six Stages of Revolution: • Stage 1: • Stage 2: • Stage 3: • Stage 4: • Stage 5: • Stage 6:

  6. Brinton’s Model of Revolutions – France • Working in your groups, identify the key events which occurred in each of Brinton’s six Stages of Revolution: • Stage 1: Raid of the Bastille Prison sets off the Revolution • Stage 2: Rule by the National Assembly • Stage 3: Maximillian Robespierre begins the terror, King/Queen executed. • Stage 4: People tire of the Terror, turn to the Army and Napoleon • Stage 5: Napoleon becomes Emperor of France • Stage 6: After expanding the French Empire, Napoleon overextends, leading to his downfall and the restoration of the French monarch.

  7. Checking in – Agree or disagree • Using a notecard, and working as a table group: look back at your responses to the warm up questions. Do you still feel the same way as you did before? • *Take into account that we have not yet talked about the Latin American revolutions. • Regardless of whether or not you’ve changed your mind, say your rationale for the answer you give to each question.
