This resource provides two teaching strategies to help students break down Brutus 1 and has been specifically designed for AP® U.S Government classes. The resource breaks down the 11-page primary source into 6 pages of key excerpts from the document. You can choose to teach Brutus 1 in one of the following two formats:
1) Students will match each excerpt with a correct corresponding annotation/summary.
2) Students will work together to write their own annotation/summary for each excerpt. This format is perfect for a jigsaw and students can teach their peers as they break down their section.
Both formats come with directions, answer keys, and all materials ready to go. The document has already been broken down for you and your students, so save yourself all those hours of work! Students will leave with a comprehensive understanding of this primary source after breaking down each element and highlighting its key concepts.
Brutus 1 is one of the new required foundational documents for the redesigned AP® U.S. Government exam and this resource will help you to easily incorporate it into your new curriculum.
