PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you want to implement more critical and higher order thinking into your Social Studies / History lessons, you should have your students analyze a document. Whether it's the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, or one of FDR's Fireside Chats - you can use this Graphic Organizer to elevate your students' thinking while analyzing the document.

I created this Graphic Organizer to help guide your students in analyzing a historical document. Not only does the Graphic Organizer serve as a guide, but it's also a place for them to record what they are thinking. It includes the following parts:

*Identifying the type of document
*Date / Author / Intended Audience
*Unique physical characteristics
*Document Information
-Why it was written & evidence to support that
-Connecting the document to life in the US @ the time it
was written
-Question to the author of the document
-Student Opinion: Most important part and why


This is also a great teaching tool that aligns with the Common Core State Standards for teaching Nonfiction - Historical Events.

If you have any questions about this product or how to incorporate it into your lessons, please contact me at tncmiller12@yahoo.com. I would love to help!

Happy Teaching!

*** If you're all about spicing up your lessons with more analysis - check out my store for a Graphic Organizer on Analyzing Historical Photographs. I'm also in the process of creating Graphic Organizers for analyzing artifacts and political cartoons....They'll be posted soon!
