Thomas Jefferson's Concept of America

Students study Thomas Jefferson's concept of America. They read a chapter from the book, Thomas Jefferson's America, and discuss its main events comparing it to current events. Role-playing a citizen from the 1790s, they write a letter to the editor reflective of the concerns of the time period.
