Notes for Teachers

This lesson should take two class periods to complete the close reading, text-dependent questions, and the essay.

The Teaching Channel provides a video of a Declaration Close Reading lesson with an interesting hook to inspire student interest.

Depending on when this lesson fits into the scope and sequence of the course of study, students may require a lesson(s) on political principles prior to this close read to give them the ability to use the appropriate terms in their analysis of the Declaration and the culminating essay. Those principles may include natural rights philosophy vs. divine right of kings, unalienable rights, consent of the governed, liberty, freedom, equality, right to revolution, legitimate government, etc.

Students should have some background knowledge of the American colonial relationship with Great Britain prior to beginning this lesson.
