EIGHTEEN CENTURY

Working with the US Declaration of Independence

Exercises about the US Declaration of Independence preface. Main sentences and paragraphs of this preamble could be substituted by a more simple, easy and modern English. This is the core of the exercise. We offer to the students a disordered group of sentences they have the same meaning that the original ones. The idea is to understand the old fashion English discovering the same meanings in the modern ones and match one each other.

It also allow to understand and work with the main aspects of the liberalism political theory.

WHO IS WHO IN THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION?


We provide the students with a group of sentences, hints or clues, about life and political work of the Founding Fathers and other famous people that took part in the war for Independence. Their task is to match every hint and clue with the correct character and their portrait. There is also a famous quote related to each character, that the students must complete, as there are several words missed. They have to find out the character who is the intruder, as he or she is not related to the American revolution. Another task is to write a short biography of every character.
The whole explanation of how to manage with this exercise is inside it.
