This packet is designed to help students discover the influences and causes of the French revolution. It allows them to synthesize important democratic documents (Magna Carta, English Bill of Rights, US Declaration of Independence, Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen, and enlightenment thinkers' ideals) to predict their affects on the French Revolution.
This lesson should be used as a precursor to discussing Robespierre, the Reign of Terror and Napoleon. The documents are not included, but are typically included in most accepted World History textbooks.
Perfect for Common Core and comparing primary sources!
