PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an in-depth discussion guide for close reading "The Declaration of Independence." Sections of text are broken down for close reading and discussion for improved comprehension and understanding of the building blocks of reason and argument

The lesson is broken down into 3 distinct sections with goals for each. They may be taught within a single class, but should be spread out, which allows for other daily activities. This extended focus on a single text is how we can accomplish the depth of analysis asked for in the Common Core curriculum and help our students gain greater skill with any text. There is a focus activity and followup for each concept for formative asssessment and discussion questions (with answers) for guided discussion of the text. There is a final project for assessment at the end.
Central Concern #1 - Prepare the reader
Central Concern #2 - Providing evidence
Central Concern #3 - Making a statement

Lesson covers CC ELA 11-12 Standards Reading Informational Texts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8, Writing 1, 5, and Speaking and Listening 1
