Students are using an interactive notebook format to analyse the Declaration of Independence. Students are more engaged with document analysis when they are able to manipulate the activity and work in pairs or groups of three.
This can be easily differentiated by adding to or subtracting from the attached glossary. Included is a PowerPoint that introduces the activity, as well as two brief videos to help summarize the Declaration of Independence.
Students will need to glue the original text along the folded lines over the provided lines in the packet for them to summarize the document in their own words.
