PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This PowerPoint presentation provides students with an introduction to the arguments presented in Thomas Paine's book "Common Sense." Emphasis is given to the ideas that the American colonies were too far away to be governed by England, that England was a mere island and should not govern a continent, and that the American colonies did not need England financially.

The PowerPoint is saved using an Office 97-2003 format, uses a Calibri font, and includes custom animation. Adjustments can be made for single teacher use as needed.

This biography included in the zip file focuses on Paine's arrival in the American Colonies and major arguments in his work "Common Sense." The biography also addresses the impact Paine's arguments had on both separating from England and on documents such as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

The biography includes a series of questions based on the reading.

In using this in my own class room, students are encouraged to:

1. Number the paragraphs

2. Read the biography

3. Highlight answers in the reading

4. Use complete sentences.

The answer key demonstrates these steps.
