Before reading the novel, Chasing Lincoln's Killer, use this presentation as a quick and stress free way to introduce all of the key "characters". It's a good way to explain to students that they may seem like story characters, but they were real people in our country's history.
You can have students take their own notes in a notebook or make a quick notes guide for students to fill out. You can also make this into a Google Slides presentation and save to your students' Drive or post on your Google Classroom (spoken by a fellow Google Educator).
This will act as a great reference throughout the novel as these names come up!
