Due Date: 9/10/2015
Subject: English 10

Write Your Own 
  Declaration of Independence

It   is possible to see in The Declaration of   Independence a Five-Part Structure:

1)   A Preamble which answers   the question: Why are we writing this document?

2)   A Philosophical Foundation which   answers the question: What gives us the right to declare our independence?

3)   A List of Grievances which   answers the question: How have our basic rights been violated?

4)   An Explanation of Previous Actions which   answers the question: What have we already done to solve our problems up to   this point?

5)   A Resolution which   answers the question: What do we now intend to do?


Your Job

Choose an area or issue in your own life from   which you would like to declare independence. 
  Write your own 
Personal   Declaration of Independence
in   which you follow the same Five-Part Structure.

How long does it have to be?
  It needs to use all five parts and develop each as thoroughly and as   creatively as you can.
