#helpnorcal Students analyze the successes and failures of Reconstruction by making their own Reconstruction plan in 1865. The assignment provides a brief background and 9 prompts/questions for the students to respond to in creating their Reconstruction plan. They must also objectively address 5 items to compare and contrast their plan to the actual Reconstruction Plan enacted after the Civil War. Lastly, there is an optional image analysis section with 9 images and 6 prompts for students to respond to. A points distribution is included and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--What percent of the southern population must take an oath of loyalty to be able to be represented in Congress? Why did you choose that number?
--Will there be a strong, centralized, federal presence in the South enforcing political and civil equality? Why or why not? If so, for what duration and how is that duration determined?
--Should there be a Freedmen’s Bureau, and if so, what should be its reach and scope?
