To study the Civil War Period and the growth and development of the United States after 1865, using a variety of assignments and reference sources.
3 class periods
Each student will read through a list of 25 assignments on the Civil War Period that they might enjoy doing. Some of the assignments will earn the student 10 points, some are worth 15 points, and the others will earn the student 20 points each.
Class members must choose to do at least one assignment in each point category. Each student has to do enough assignments so that their points will add up to at least 100.
All assignments can be done using the textbook, encyclopedias, atlases, and almanacs.
You may want to give extra credit to those students who do more than the minimum requirement of 100 points.
My students like this lesson because they get to do what interests them the most.
