This lesson plan focuses on one of the big takeaways from the reading. It requires students to reread several sections of the text, to interpret the author's message and also to use evidence from the text to support their answers. Students will need to be familiar with key vocabulary (commerce, justice) and will need to understand the concepts of independence and government matters. This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team. Special Materials: Students will need a copy of the anchor text.
