Thomas Jefferson on their own, or together with the class with an instructor's
guidance. Students will circle words that they do not understand and the use a
dictionary to define those words. They can substitute synonyms onto their copy of
the document. Then, your students will re-read the Declaration with the synonyms
and definitions and underline the main idea of each paragraph. Students can
discuss their findings with their peers or an instructor. Finally, students will answer a
series of short, document-based questions to help them develop a deeper, more
thorough understanding of the document that declared the United States an
independent nation. At the conclusion of this activity, students will have a new
perspective on how the Enlightenment influenced American independence, and how
those ideals are at the foundation of the American republic!
