Product Description
Engage your students in historical decision-making as they become President Abraham Lincoln as he confronts the beginning of the Civil War with the crisis at Fort Sumter. Students weigh the advantages and disadvantages of the options Lincoln is considering; options provided are supported with primary sources and "questions to consider." Following the completion of a chart to compare the advantages and disadvantages of each option, students can respond to an included writing prompt (rubric included) to state what they would do if they were Lincoln. Lesson plan includes handouts on Lincoln's options, a scenario introduction summary, a comparison chart to be completed of the options, writing prompt and rubric, and "What Really Happened," which explains Lincoln's decision and its effects.
