A program designed to help US students better understand the concept and reality of our interdependent world through the work and experiences of James Wilson, signer of the Declaration of Independence and Founding Father of the United States of America. Using Bob Gleason, actor, to role play a James Wilson, history comes to life with his first person perspective on the shaping of our nation from 1765-1800.
Students will get a better understanding of how the changing world of the Industrial Revolution brought new interdependent thinking into our social, political and military endeavors.
Learn how the seeds of interdependence were planted by our Founding Fathers as they experienced living as an independent nation under the Articles of Confederation and moved to the interdependent concepts found in the US Constitution. See how the new government in the 1790-1800 time period dealt with this changing world. The program can be customized to teach interdependence through 1776-1800 curriculum guidelines.
