Reconstruction

The final topic my students are studying this year is Reconstruction, the time period after the Civil War. I am linking this era to the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s in order to allow students to compare and contrast the efforts made and the progress that still needed to be made in the South and in the United States.

Next week we will be examining many primary sources using the song "We Shall Overcome" as our overriding theme. It's a powerful and impactful way to end the school year.
