This reading guide is designed to help students navigate the Declaration of Independence. A description at the top of the page helps summarize the Declaration of Independence, then students analyze the three parts of the document and answer questions. A column on the left-hand side has been added to help students with words they may not understand. A reflection section has been added to the bottom to help students critically think about what they have learned.
This reading guide may be used in partners, a small group, as a part of a Read-Aloud-Think-Aloud, or as an individual assignment.
