** A Note About Religion **


This curriculum packet is written from a secular perspective. However, when teaching about allusions, no discussion is complete without acknowledging the myriad religious references found in literature and great speeches – including Patrick Henry’s Give Me Liberty speech. Every effort has been made to present the limited discussion on religious references in an objective and nonsectarian manner.

** Using This Packet **


(1) Print-and-go with self-directed, independent learners who have already mastered your social studies content.

(2) Integrated as a writing supplement to any pre-Revolutionary history lesson - using as small-group activities.

(3) Use as alternative assignments for high school students who need extra practice with expressive language skills.

NOTE: This packet does *not* explicitly nor thoroughly analyze Patrick Henry's Give Me Liberty speech. Selected quotes from the speech are used to connect history with writing.
