NEW: Note: This is included in the all-inclusive package with website access so
This fun project is a good way to review the general characteristics of the key figures of the Civil War (the ones in the standards...) Students jot down notes on Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, Abraham Lincoln, and Frederick Douglass. Then, they seat them at the table so that they are seated next to someone who they will get along with, or at least have something in common with. Scaffold for ELLs and struggling students. More advanced options for more advanced students. I will add a summative writing passage for a more thorough class. THIS INCLUDES EXAMPLES SO YOU CAN SHOW YOUR STUDENTS.
