Product Description
Students will examine primary and secondary source documents to establish an understanding of America’s fight for independence against Great Britain. Common Sense by Thomas Paine and the Declaration of Independence are a couple of the primary sources included. Students will examine key events, people, and ideas that led to the American Revolution and American independence. Students will compare and contrast differing viewpoints that led to America declaring their independence from Great Britain and resulting in the war.

This is an engaging lesson that will encourage student discussion. Included is a scripted lesson plan, ten sources (primary and secondary sources), and questions. Some questions are simple recall questions, since the purpose of the lesson is to learn the Social Studies content using literacy. Other questions are higher-order thinking questions.The lesson concludes with a constructed response.
