This is a one-page reading with comprehension questions about the Dred Scott case. Students will get a glimpse of yet another event that brought about tensions between the North and the South.
This is a topic that I do not spend a tremendous amount of time on, but want my students to be aware of the challenges with slavery in the United States. This is one more event that led the US towards Civil War.
This can be used a an in-class assignment, homework or a "leave behind" for a substitute.
Thank you for checking it out!
