Book Club – Declaration of Independence: Museum in a Book

In search of a book to challenge my advanced learners, I turn to Declaration of Independence – The Story Behind America’s Founding Document and the Men Who Created It.  This rich book contains pull-out primary sources, engaging readers from page to page.  The pages are DENSE, the sources are authentic, and the content is a pleaser.  Create a textbook scavenger hunt, have students compare their prior knowledge with their acquired knowledge after perusing the text, or have students analyze individual primary sources and gain background information alongside the analysis.   This book is not suitable as a read aloud or for whole book instruction.
