Product Description
"What did the King think of the Declaration?" It is a question I hear every year when I teach my students about the Declaration. I enjoy showing them King George III's speech before Parliament in the fall of 1776 (included in this activity). But I also want to help them examine the many perspectives in the war, and to understand that history is a multi-layered tale of people, so this activity involves examining more than just the King's reaction. Making use of databases available online, I have excerpted speeches and newspaper articles from the 1770s that show that people had differing reactions to Jefferson's revolutionary document.

This activity makes use of students' interest in social media while also examining primary source documents.
