22 Jan History Projects
Our History classes are exploring how slavery grew to become the issue, which more than anything else, split the United States, North and South, causing secession and the Civil War. Students have explored the events leading to the Civil War using videos, texts, and, PowerPoint presentations. In addition to class discussions on the topic, students have written document-based essays and in-class presentations on the roles of different personalities during the Civil War. Currently, students are working on a 7-14 pages Civil War scrapbook project that will highlight the major events, maps and description of major battles and soldiers’ letters to their families, among other things. Students will be required to present the contents of their scrapbooks to the class.
