Product Description
Objective: Students will analyze the Declaration of Independence for its classic structure of argument and the organization of its context and claim for justifying independence.

Students will use the Declaration of Independence as a model of the structure of a classical argument in order to write their own argument for their reasoning and claims to be separated from the shackles of childhood and justifying why they should be considered an independent adult.

This classical argument writing assignment will require students to investigate the format of classical arguments, determine strong claims and justification for their reasoning, and establish the credibility of their argument in order to create a convincing and engaging case for their independence as an adult.
