Predicting the Meaning of the Declaration of Independence

Lesson Duration

From Texas Law-Related Education

Part One: Students read statements and decide if they think the statement is true or false.

Part Two: Students read the Declaration of Independence. As they find the correct answers to the statements, students write whether it is actually true or false and quote the part of the Declaration that validates their final answer. If there is no citation, they write “no evidence to validate.”

Part Three: Conclude with debriefing questions.
