Activity Overview


This activity can be used throughout the reading of Common Sense, as it will require students to define a word that Paine uses that they may not be familiar with. In order for students to comprehend Paine's arguments, it is essential they understand the vocabulary he uses. Students will create a list of terms they are unfamiliar with as they read, and create a storyboard grid that will include the context of the term from the passage, a definition of the term, and a representation of what the term means or how it is used.


Extended Activity

For an extended activity, students should take each vocabulary term and create a modern-day representation of each term. Depending on teacher preference, the extended activity can reflect modern issues in society, or popular culture references.
