E-book, Lesson Plan


Students will be asked to describe and list the sections of the Declaration of Independence and explain the basic purpose as well as demonstrate an awareness of the Declaration of Independence as a historical process developed in protest of unfair conditions. Then they will ‘declare freedom’ today based on their grievances. Students are required to: participate in a weekly discussion board; complete journal entries; take part in group activities and produce and present a final project. Each group will produce a multimedia project to demonstrate their applied understanding of the lesson.
