In this highly engaging unit, students investigate the age of antebellum reform by focusing on seven different aspects of the movement. Students read 7 Common Core focused and challenging articles that provide the content for this unit. Students are introduced to the birth of this movement in the Second Great Awakening, then learn about five different areas of reform: Temperance (no alcohol consumption), Prison Reform (Dorothea Dix), School Reform (Horace Mann), Abolition (Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison), and the early Women's Rights Movement (Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B Anthony, Lucretia Mott)!
This resource includes a paper in-class version and a 1:1 Google compatible version to be used in conjunction with Google Classroom. Just follow the included instructions for how to access the Google version, then share the resource through Google or assign via Google Classroom. This will allow students to type directly into the document!
Each Common Core article includes primary source analysis from one of the founders of the movement! Students analyze text from, among others, Charles Finney, William Lloyd Garrison, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton!
To accompany each section of text, students complete two additional activities where they break down the movement! Students complete a note-taking activity, then create a poem or protest poster that recaps the highlights of the reform!
