Included in this packet:
• Title page
• Do Now - Primary Source Quote analysis from Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin

• Answer Key for Teachers

Students will research, analyze, and use their critical thinking skills to read the documents and complete the scaffolding questions. They will use their inferential skills to make predictions about the successes or failures of the compromises.

★ NOTE: This lesson/activity can be executed in a number of ways. I like to group my students heterogeneously based on learning level and have them walk around the classroom "station" to "station" answering the questions together. This way, you won't have to make copies of the documents for every student.

You can also execute a "document pass" with the students passing the documents group to group with them remaining stationary. Yours to execute how you would like!

Adheres to Social Studies Common Core Standards - research, application, literacy, vocabulary

Differentiation: scaffolding questions, common core aligned reading analysis, close reading, cooperative (may work with a partner(s) according to teacher's discretion for scaffolding questions and activities); reading passages are leveled (lower levels and higher levels)

You can find all of my Civil War lessons and activities HERE!
