This bundle contains both an excellent paraphrased version and a series of questions based on the Declaration of Independence. The paraphrased version makes the document more accessible to students and the questions are intended to familiarize students with the various grievances put forth by the Founding Fathers against Britain.
The download also includes an answer key that highlights those portions of the Declaration used to answer the questions.
Please note that this resource is designed to be used in conjunction with - rather than instead of - the actual text of the Declaration.
The bundle also includes a biography on Thomas Jefferson. The biography highlights Jefferson's role in writing the Declaration of Independence, his differences with Alexander Hamilton, the Louisiana Purchase, and his contradictory position on slavery.
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.
For those seeking distance learning options, both the review questions and the biography can be readily converted to digital activities using Google Slides.
