This short PBL titled "Breaking Up With The Brits" is a fun way to introduce Seminal US Documents (Common Core Standards Requirement!) to 9th and 10th grade English students. It is also a great way to do a little cross-curricular teaching. You begin with a poll that addresses the modern student's life and moves into the same students crafting a breakup letter. This is your hook! I promise they will be hooked after this. It is a short PBL--again, it is only meant for a maximum of two days instruction (perhaps you have struggling learners).
