This is a single lesson by Reading Through History. In this download there is a one page biography of George Mason. The lesson explains Mason's role in writing the Virginia State Constitution and the Virginia Declaration of Rights as well as his role in ensuring that a Bill of Rights was included in the United States Constitution. The biography is followed by three pages of student activities which include reading comprehension questions, guided reading activities, vocabulary activities, student summaries, and a student response essay question. This download includes enough material to cover 25-30 minutes of class.
*My students typically complete the work in about 25-30 minutes. This provides for 10 to 15 minutes of discussion/intro prior to the assignment.
