This post-reading, American Literature activity asks that small groups of six students answer assigned questions about Thomas Paine's pamphlet "The Crisis No. 1." The editable file includes 6 pages, one for each person in the group, and includes the question, directions, and rubric for participation.
Because the text and the questions are somewhat difficult, this activity might be better suited for upper-level students in honors or AP classes.
