PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This handout analyzes the list of grievances in the Declaration of Independence.

This is a different approach to asking students to summarize a primary source, which can be a challenge for some. Instead of students doing the summarizing, they are given a statement that they must prove by finding the exact words within the Declaration. The handout instructs them to write the line number and copying the words from the source.

After they have cited the evidence, they answer 5 thinking questions to further broaden their understanding of the list of grievances.

An answer document is included.

I have a "Prove It!" analysis for the preamble to the DOI in my store!

If you have a moment, I would love to hear from you!
