Instructor Overview

What makes a revolution possible? Values, beliefs, grievances, and solutions formed a potent mixture that made the American Revolution happen. In this lesson, students use a variety of materials to learn about the making of the Declaration of Independence. The lesson culminates in students recreating the Declaration in their own words, or making their own personal declaration of independence.

This Lesson Plan was created to use in conjunction with materials in Clusive [], a free, online learning environment that makes materials flexible and accessible.
