Today we talked about the start of the American Revolution. We looked at Thomas Jefferson, as well the Continental Congress' desire to part from Britain. Then we thoroughly analyzed the structure of the Declaration of Independence and came to the conclusion that it was structured in the same way as any well written essay.
Your homework tonight is to craft a break-up letter to an imaginary significant other in the format/structure of the Declaration of Independence.
Here is the structure:
1.(Claim): Statement of hypothetical rights/treatments you deserve followed by your request for independence
2.(Evidence) List of wrongdoings your significant other has besieged upon you
3.(Analysis) Explanation of how these wrongdoings have impacted your life and impeded on your liberties
4.(Conclusion) A final farewell solidifying your departure from the relationship
