----------

In this highly-engaging and Common Core focused lesson, students learn about the crucial Supreme Court case known as the Dred Scott decision, the reaction throughout the North and South, and how it further set the nation down the path of Civil War.

First, students complete an introductory reading activity on the Dred Scott decision which can serve as an all-inclusive resource if time is limited. Then, students analyze two newspaper primary sources that show the public reaction to the Supreme Court's ruling. One from the North and one from the South, students analyze these two sources to see how the ruling was felt throughout the nation and how it further divided the United States and led to Civil War.

To conclude, students write a "Letter to the Editor" as a culminating writing assignment where they either agree or disagree to a certain newspaper!

Very eye-opening lesson that creates multiple chances for meaningful conversations with your students!
