The Declaration of Independence is a great resource to use to help students understand the purposes of our government and the historical rationale for the Revolutionary War. While it is still important to read the actual text of the Declaration, some of the message can be lost on middle and high school students. That is why this resource is great to use in connection with the actual document or on its own. This also includes a guided reading document, an argument analysis sheet, a synthesis sheet and a quiz. When I used it, I had them do the guided reading at home, we did the analysis sheet and reading connector together in school and we had a class discussion on the major concepts. This product also includes worksheets to hold a student led discussion. Don't hesitate to contact me with questions.
