How would Niccolo Machiavelli’s advice given in “The Prince” work if world leaders applied it to modern day scenarios? Students are asked to analyze the primary document “The Prince” and answer a set of comprehension questions. Then, students are given several scenarios in which they are asked to pretend they are Niccolo Machiavelli and give Donald Trump advice using the themes in the primary source for guidance. Discussion questions are included. This is a great activity for analyzing primary documents for Common Core!
