This biography on Thomas Paine focuses on his arrival in the American Colonies and major arguments in his work Common Sense
. The biography also addresses the impact Paine's arguments had on both separating from England and on documents such as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
The biography includes a series of questions based on the reading.
In using this in my own class room, students are encouraged to:
1. Number the paragraphs
2. Read the biography
3. Highlight answers in the reading
4. Use complete sentences
The answer key demonstrates these steps.
