Reviewer Comments:

This resource is a lesson plan that explores the concept of justice. Students reflect on the meaning of justice and what it means to live in a just society. Quotes and primary sources are used to engage and spur discussion amongst the students. The lesson is linked to whether the British colonies in the 1770s was a just community, however, it can be applied to other relevant topics. The culminating activity asks students to apply what they have learned to a dream about the time period that incorporates the primary sources. The creative assessment may be difficult for some students and a more traditional assessment could be substituted as needed.
