Today we talked about the Declaration of Independence (without a single Nicholas Cage joke!). We broke down the structure, purpose, and context. We focused intently on the structure of the letter, and why it was so effective.
Your homework is to:
Write a break-up letter to an imaginary significant other in the format/structure of the Declaration of Independence
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
