This Civil War unit covers the period in the United States during which the Civil War and Reconstruction took place. The unit is a “Layered Work” unit, meaning the first layer is completed before the next layer earning points for the student along the way to full completion. It is intended for students to have some choice over their learning while they explore a topic also planning what grade they would like to earn by the end.
During a layered unit, the teacher becomes a facilitator. While students work, the teacher can provide individual instruction to those who need it. It also allows teachers to work with small groups if needed.
One element of this layered unit utilizes a text book. Those pages have been left blank for customization according to the local textbook adoption. If a textbook is unavailable, please choose another book or adjust point value to other choices.
