I shared this document to the students in my American Government class. Each group was assigned ONE of the events or acts (Boston Tea Party, Boston Massacre, Intolerable Acts, Stamp Act). They answered the questions by researching on their own - and then the next day taught each other. This goes along with Chapter 2 of Magruder's American Government Class.
I also posted my answer document that I presented to the class.
(I created this as a Google Docs assignment and posted it to Google Classroom. Email me if you would like those materials. The transition from Google Slides to Powerpoint isn't perfect)
The assignment was an extended response question:
Choose two of the four events/acts and explain what it is and how or why it led to the Declaration of Independence.
