The Life of Thomas Jefferson and the Declaration of Independence are critical elements of virtually any history course covering early American History. Thomas Jefferson’s World would be relevant material for these courses as well as courses in politics, government, or world history classes that focus on world revolutions and the role that enlightenment ideals played in many of them. The activities presented in this guide would encourage students to develop a variety of skills related to reading, writing, analysis, and interpretation that are listed in the Common Core Standards.
