Rich in Common Core higher order thinking, this activity has students matching primary document excerpts of democracy's principles from the Magna Carta, English Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, U.S. Bill of Rights and French Declaration of the Rights of Man to modern day interpretations while justifying their match. Students will also present a short argument for the possible origin of the principle. There is much flexibility to the activity. There are 24 placards which the students will analyze and match on their own charts in either rotating groups or at their own pace with the teacher checking for understanding and stamping correct responses. A teacher "chart key" helps speed the process along. PowerPoint and Word files. From Social Science Summit
