Product Description
This activity was designed to address ELA Common Core Learning Standards in an 8th Grade Social Studies lesson. The primary source excerpts come from the Stanford History Education Group (http://sheg.stanford.edu/) but the text-based questions were created by me and are modeled after typical NYS 7th-8th Grade ELA Assessment questions. I believe this activity will provide an excellent supplement to any lesson about Thomas Paine's Common Sense and Loyalist reactions to it during the beginning phase of the American Revolution by getting the students to read like historians and approach historical events from multiple angles and voices.
