In this highly engaging resource, students are introduced to the Kansas-Nebraska Act, the role of Stephen Douglas, the view of both the North and South, the idea of popular sovereignty, and the beginnings of the famous Lincoln-Douglas debates!

Students complete an introductory reading on the Kansas and Nebraska Act that can serve as an all-inclusive resource if time is limited! Then, students analyze two speeches (one from Abraham Lincoln and one from Stephen Douglas) to learn the differing views of slavery from Lincoln and Douglas. Finally, students complete a four step graphic organizer to understand their views!

This resource includes a paper in-class version and a 1:1 Google compatible version to be used in conjunction with Google Classroom. Just follow the included instructions for how to access the Google version, then share the resource through Google or assign via Google Classroom.
