An excellent lesson plan for teaching the Declaration of Independence to high school students. Students compare the Declaration of Independence to a break-up letter. Student pairs work through the grievances listed in the document. Powerpoint lesson contains:
- Do Now Activity
- Relevant Student Notes (5W's, Parts of the Declaration)
- Student Pair Activity
This lesson typically takes about 45 minutes. I have taught this lesson for five years and I have had massive success.
