Product Description
A great way to allow students to be creative while they analyze the arguments put forth in one of our most important founding documents! I've included a "pre assignment" whereby the students familiarize themselves with the Declaration by putting each section in their own words and trying to come up with the main argument of the entire document. I've also included the actual remix assignment whereby the students are asked to write their own Declaration from something that they would like to be independent from (using the main reasoning and structure of the actual Declaration). I've also included a sample remix that the students can use as a template as they write their own. It is a neat social studies assignment because students find that just by inserting a few key words and phrases they can change the entire meaning of the Declaration and make it their own (all the while using the same reasoning the Founding Fathers employed to declare their own independence!) I would suggest this assignment for any U.S. History or Government class. It can also be used as either group work or individual work. - I Love Gov
