  • Who is the intended audience?  How can you tell? 
b) Evidence
  • What are some direct lines and words that you feel best illustrate the central ideas?  Why?

c) Connections
  • What events may have impacted the author?
  • How is this a reflection of the historical time period?
  • How does this help you answer the EQ?
d) What shocked, impressed, or inspired you about this document? Why?
