Product Description
This original Readers' Theater script assumes you have already pre-taught the basic ideas of Locke an Hobbes, and how their ideas influenced Thomas Jefferson. This drives home the notion of why we have government at all, and why Democracy was our choice for our new government. I did this with grades 5 - 8, and they all loved it! I would think high school students would also enjoy this activity. I used the iCivics website (from Sandra Day O'Connor) to help with my preceding lessons, and then we used this play to help reinforce understanding. *This script has 8 characters, so this could be done in small groups, or split your class and have 3 or 4 performances. My students enjoyed seeing the other groups perform, and the repetition helped students absorb the concepts.
