Know Your Rights Using Primary Sources: Listing your own grievances


Students will be working in pairs examining three primary sources -listing the grievances in the Declaration of Independence, the individual rights listed in the U.S. Bill of Rights (creating one cause & effect chart) and then comparing the rights in the U. S. Bill of Rights to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. They will note similarities and differences in order to complete either a Compare and Contrast chart or a Venn diagram.
