The "America the Story of Us" series is a great support tool for any US History Classroom. In Episode 4, the Causes of the American Civil War is addressed in a 45 minute overview. This episode touches on topics such as economic differences between the north and south, treatment of slaves, the abolitionist movement, and secession.
This product contains a 9 question student handout. These questions cannot be answered in 1 word. Instead they look deeper at the issues presented. Included is an answer key that breaks down the time frame for EVERY question. This will allow teachers to stop at appropriate places and allow for either: individual response time, student cooperative discussion, or class discussion. The flexibility is up to each teacher for what will fit their classroom the best!
The product finishes with the students making an evaluation on the course of the nation.
