----------------------------

In this highly-engaging and very Common Core focused activity, students come to understand the nature of the American terrorist group known as the Ku Klux Klan that was born in the Reconstruction period in American History.

Students investigate 11 different sources ranging from the Klansman's handbook to political cartoons to newspaper accounts to answer three essential questions regarding the KKK:

- Who were the Ku Klux Klan?
- What were their goals?
- How did they accomplish their goals?

Students compile source information regarding each source they investigate and take essential notes based on how it helps answer their essential questions!

To conclude, students compile an engaging report to the Department of Homeland Security regarding the history, nature, and methods of the Ku Klux Klan!

This activity includes modifications for differentiated instruction as well - one with the source and note-taking packet and the other with the culminating student writing assignment.

This is always a class favorite - this topic is naturally very interesting to all students and this activity places students in the investigators' shoes as they interact with real primary sources!

Enjoy!
