Students reconstruct the colonial argument for dissolving their ties to Great Britain. Main steps of the learning process include: close reading of the first two paragraphs of the Declaration; research on British actions and why they disturbed the colonists; a transition step where students take the roles of probing reporters, outraged colonists, and justifying loyalists; and a writing process that includes student review of each other's work.
