Hmmm...you can mention the cries of "taxation without representation" where the colonists wanted to be recognized as British subjects and Britain replied by saying that they were - through "virtual representation." It's in the Pageant 12e, I think look back at the index and find what page has the Navigation Acts...it's in that chapter I think...

For switch in social class...I'm not very sure about this but maybe talk about how after breaking away from Britain, they were able to maintain their own economic/social mobility without the aid from Britain although they ran to troubles like panics and depressions...

The below statement is false.

You could talk about Thomas Paine's "Common Sense" and the other colonial literature of the period which basically decried the avoidance of the subject and forced the American colonists to realize that their treatment with Parliaments continued passing of Acts was base and degrading. As for social mobility...the colonies had spacious areas of land that they could occupy and land owning automatically elevated your social status.
