The Development of a Declaration: Diction, Syntax and Rhetoric in the Age of Revolutions (Day 2 of 2)

Unit 8: Literary: Analysis of Plot and Character Development in A Tale of Two Cities
Lesson 7 of 11

Objective: SWBAT analyze the craft and structure of seminal U.S. documents by comparing the Declaration of Independence, the Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Declaration of the Sentiments from the Seneca Falls Convention with the intention of writing a Declaration of the Rights of Students.

Big Idea: Revolutions are cyclical in nature--and they all share similar ideas, documents and strategies. At the risk of starting our own revolution, helping students to create their own declaration is one way to dive into this historical concept.
