Today we talked about the political, social, and ideological build up to the American Revolution. We analyzed how these factors added to colonial desire and willingness for violence, saw the first battle of the war, and analyzed the structure of the Declaration of Independence.
Your homework tonight is to write a break-up letter to an imaginary significant other (person, thing, idea, activity, etc.) in the format/structure of the Declaration of Independence.
Include (and label) each of the following in your letter:
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
