Product Description
This cooperative learning seminal document lesson introduces the students to the definition, characteristics, and examples of seminal documents prior to reading full-text examples. This activity provides seven different excerpts of well-known seminal documents.
The students read, summarize, and identify key parts of each document using a jigsaw or other cooperative learning strategies. The key is to have students engaged in conversations in which demonstrate comprehension of the key components of a seminal document, which will allow for an easier transition once you start analyzing other seminal documents.
