Actually, there are generally considered to be five parts of the Declaration of Independence, according to the National Archives. But many historians have critiqued the document and some feel that it can be divided into three, four and even six parts. In view of the discrepancy on what, in one sense, is just a matter of opinion depending on the person giving it, I will go with the National Archives' opinion and leave it to readers to form their own opinions. The parts are:
1. The Introduction. This is the opening paragraph; a single sentence beginning with "We the People..." It is sometime erroneously referred to as the Preamble, probably because the opening paragraph of the US Constitution is referred to as the Preamble to the Constitution.
2. The Preamble. The second paragraph, which begins with "We hold theses truths to be self-evident. The Preamble sets the logic al argument that people have rights, that people form governments to secure those rights and when a government becomes destructive of those rights, the people have a right and a duty to throw off that government.
3. The Indictment of King George III. The list of wrongs the King has done to show the ways in which the King has abused the rights of the colonists.
4. The Denunciation of the British people. A statement announcing not only the separation of colonial government from British government, but colonial people from British people.
5. Conclusion. The Declaration of Independence from the King and his British peoples is the only logical conclusion to be taken from the above.
What could lead to the different opinions on the number of parts. For one, the "Introduction" is mistakenly called the Preamble, the way the first paragraph of the Constitution is called. Admittedly, calling the second paragraph the "Preamble" seems wrong, but that is what the National Archives says. Some split the last two paragraphs into "Conclusion" and "Declaration" instead of calling both just the "Conclusion". Some combine the indictment of the king and the denunciation of the British peoples as one section.

Originally Answered: My class is so hard! I have so much to study and so much homework! What do I do? (this is history by the way)?
I have a teacher like that too. Also in history(we are studying civil war medicine tech, taking pages of notes, tons of homework, and I have to memorize gettysburg address). Everyones different, so it might not work. I just take it one day at a time. During class I sit in a comfortable spot where I won't get uncomfortble or nervous about sitting in front. It kinda gets hard writing all the notes down when she talks so fast, so I only write important things. I can just memorize what I know I can remember when it comes to test time, and some things are just obvious - ex. union is good, confederate is bad. Simple things are easy to know. When I study I start a few days before the test and start doing just 20-30 mins at time with a short break for a snack. When it comes to exaime time I copy my notes down over and over and take also make flashcards. This is 11th grade stuff by the way.
Good luck! School is a battlefield! XD
The Declaration is divided into three parts of unequal length. An introduction of two paragraphs states the general ideals of government that justify the colonists' decision to become an independent nation. The second and longest section charges King George III with many violations of American rights. The final three paragraphs explain that the colonists have tried to solve their dispute with Britain peacefully. But because Britain has ignored all their efforts, the united colonies can now ask other nations to recognize that Americans have the same rights of self-government as any other people. Each of these points added an important element to the case for independence

The first part is an introduction that states the purpose of the document, which was to explain why the American people were declaring independence from the government of Great Britain.
The second part is a theory of good government and individual rights generally accepted by Americans from the 1770s until today. In this theory, all individuals are equal in their possession of certain immutable rights. These rights are not granted by the government. Rather, they are inherent to human nature
The third part of the document is a list of grievances against King George III, who was singled out to represent the actions of the British government. These grievances are examples of actions that violated the criteria for good government stated in the second part of the Declaration of Independence.
The fourth and final part of the document is an unqualified assertion of sovereignty by the United States of America. It proclaims the determination of Americans to defend and maintain their independence and rights.

Your class might be a lot of work, personally mine had no homework only tests and reading. Get a prep book and review, learn the exam format. It is not hard at all but it is a lot of material. If you study hard you will do fine, I walked out of the test hoping I had passed and got a 5.
