************************************

Greatness is knowing how to be convincing for causes about which you are passionate.

That famous opening line of the U.S. Constitution’s Preamble, to recognize imperfection, to work to be better, did not fall on deaf ears. Brown, female, and poor alike took those words to heart and fought hard to turn them true, making the Era of the Common Man one that was long overdue, yet not given for many.

Cut through the boring textbook and head straight to the compelling sources that make these rapidly expanding decades of the 1820s to the 1850s one of obvious hypocrisy and of pointed challenges to hold those words to practice, arriving your students to answer, “How can I change the status quo?”

Included are:
- Detailed lesson plans, with strategies for all reading levels
- 2 1-page definition sheets for the concepts “abolition” and “reform”
- 1-page HIPPOS reference handout and BONUS skill sheet Annotating a Text
- 6 2-page student worksheets with a short primary source document & graphic organizer sheet
- 6 accompanying HIPPOS answer keys, one for each document
- EDITABLE Word Doc with all 6 sources available for your ability to copy & paste or edit text

Tips
* Plan for 60 minutes to deeply introduce, read, annotate, analyze, and discuss one of these documents as a class.
* Great for whole class instruction, small group work, homework, DBQ practice!
