Lesson Purpose

An analysis worksheet prompting students to read and analyze historic prints using twenty questions. Included are sample prints related to the Constitution, including: The Ninth and Sufficient Pillar Raised and A Display of the United States of America

The “20 Questions” series worksheets from George Washington’s Mount Vernon are designed to guide students in a structured exploration of new primary sources. Each set of questions moves from concrete observations to an analysis of the source’s relationship to people that lived in the past. The last questions ask students to make larger conclusions about the culture of the time to inform a final writing prompt. Included with each worksheet are primary sources from George Washington’s world.
