This lesson focuses on creating an understanding of how Anthony interprets evidence from the Preamble of the United States Constitution to support her claim. In addition, the first few questions focus attention on more challenging aspects of the text, ensuring students understand what Anthony is saying. The day begins with the teacher rereading the text aloud, while students follow along in their own texts. Students may work in small groups or pairs as they return to the text to explore these questions, capturing their thinking on the student guided notes sheet. The focus question should be completed independently.
