This package covers all content aspects of the APUSH redesign objectives for the decline of Native American in Period 6 (1865-1898). An engaging source analysis and TED Talk timeline are included to allow students to gain a deeper understanding and practice DBQ related skills. Both editable Google Docs and Microsoft Word versions are available for the source activity. A personally made cause/effect graphic organizer, YouTube video, and assessment are included in this package for learning/reviewing essential content.
1. Helen Hunt Jackson's "A Century of Dishonor" APUSH Version - Source analysis group activity - Designed to work both for collaborative groups or individual practice, this activity introduces student to Helen Hunt Jackson's "A Century of Dishonor" and includes 6 key documents students are required to match to the correct event. From there, students must use the document (reinforcing DBQ skills) and analyze how the event was connected to westward expansion and the destruction of Native American culture. Key/Examples PDF included.
2. TED Talk Timeline and link for Aaron Huey's "Native American Prisoners of War" - An extremely eye-opening account of the destruction of Native culture. This is an engaging extension that reinforces synthesis comparison skills by connecting the past and present.
3. Cause and Effect graphic organizer of Native American developments (Ft. Laramie Treaty, Indian Wars, Dawes Act/Assimilation, Ghost Dance Movement, and Wounded Knee Massacre) - Includes a link to a 6 minute YouTube video I have created to explain/review the events.
4. Assessment - Short Answer Question - Requires students to connect Westward Expansion to the destruction of Native American culture using the skill of cause and effect.
