For every event in history, there are multiple perspectives, and this activity allows students to explore both sides of the Reign of Terror.
Students will look at two different primary source accounts of the Reign of Terror. Students will go through the process of thinking and analyzing a document like a historian. They have the chance to practice the skills of sourcing, close reading, and corroborating sources. Along the way there are comprehension and critical thinking questions.
The worksheets also include light differentiation to help readers who may struggle with certain vocabulary words.
