Government Violations Revisited

Work Time

Look back at your list of government violations from earlier in the class. Compare them to the work that you and your partner did identifying the colonists’ causes for complaints.

Write two to three sentences comparing your lists.

  • What, if any, similarities do you see? What are the differences in your lists?
  • Did the Declaration of Independence get you thinking differently at all about the role of government?

Write and share your observations with your classmates.
