Product Description

Engage your students in a thorough comparison of the North and South during the Antebellum Era through having them design a Janus figure reflecting the duality of the United States. Student utilize the divided map of the United States to draw and describe contrasts between the two emerging identities; using their finished product, students compose a thesis statement responding to the overall inquiry posed. A brief introduction is included with an excerpt of William Seward's "Irrepressible Conflict" speech to help them think about the division. A rubric and directions are included to guide student performance.
