Product Description
This assignment has always gotten a big response. Students learn the formatting and risks of the Declaration of Independence by following that same format to write to an authority figure (parent, teacher, coach, etc) airing their grievances and demanding change (and finishing with their John Hancock of course). In my younger years I said I would only give them an A if they had their intended audience read and sign it. I got all positive feedback from the experience, and many kids felt empowered and even achieved positive change, until one year a coach and a step-parent took issue with the assignment. Since then I only offered a bonus point on a test if they had the courage to show it to their "King George".
