Students take part in an activity whereby they get to raise the banner of revolution and state their grievances to the Powers that Be! You can do this activity either after learning about the Declaration of Independence or after you've finished the American Revolution. Using student leadership, each class must first come up with a list of things they want changed, then they must find a way to reach a consensus to list their top 4 grievances. This is where, whether they realize it or not, they end up re-enacting the Continental Congress. I've enclosed a timeline, procedure, possible topics to discuss, and a blank Declaration to fill in and sign.
