In this highly-engaging activity, students learn about southern Reconstruction by examining primary source text of the Louisiana Black Codes. Students read and examine samples of text, then translate the text into their own words. After examining all excerpts, students analyze the Black Codes as a whole and their effect on the African-American community.
Very common-core oriented!
