The students will understand how documents like Magna Carta, the English Bill of Rights, the Mayflower Compact, and Thomas Paine’s Common Sense influenced the views of American colonists when they sought their independence from Great Britain and formed their own government.
If you do not have a computer for each student, you can present the tutorial class activity completing each activity as you progress through the tutorial. If you have a smartboard, students can complete the activity at their seat, individually or with partners, and then come to the smartboard to present the answer. If you have computers or a laptop for each student, students can complete the tutorial and add answers as they progress through the tutorial at their own pace. Either way, students can then use the worksheet as a study guide for a quiz or the End of Course Exam.
