This brief unit utilizes primary sources from three different eras: Rome 44 BCE, Revolutionary America 1777, and World War II. Students read and annotate the three pieces, and then use SOAPSTone as an analysis tool. This helps the students compare and contrast the ideas of the three men. This is an excellent unit that covers many of the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in Social Studies. A PowerPoint over SOAPSTone is available at TpT but is unnecessary to use this unit. I've kept this in Word format for easy editing.
