This document is part of our series titled HOT Docs (Higher Ordered Thinking through Documents). It consists of 8 exercises which teachers can use to teach students a range of skills including comprehension, document analysis, making inferences, substantiating statements, summarizing, and evaluating documents. Each exercise makes the document more accessible and requires students to reason and to write from the actual historical text. This lesson is aligned with ELA and Social Studies Common Core standards. If you want to use the Mayflower Document as a multi-lesson critical thinking, cooperative learning activity, then this Mayflower Compact Lesson is for you.
