Product Description
This student-led activity is a spin on a role play, allowing students to take perspective of different social groups during the Reconstruction era in order to understand that there were multiple ideas of how to re-built/unify the nation after the Civil War.

Activity includes a sheet with role cards and a brief description of what a person in that role would do/believe. The following are the 5 groups pre-assigned: Northerners in the Freedmen’s Bureau, Radical Republicans, Emancipated Slaves, Southerner/Rebel, and aMember of President Johnson’s staff.

The activity also includes a planning sheet with a prompt question (essential question) "How should the United States rebuild the nation?", in addition to a C-E-R (claim, evidence, reasoning) graphic organizer students can use in gathering evidence to support their claim based on their role.

Finally, the activity includes a post-seminar/post-debate journal entry that asks the students to interpret the multiple ideas of reconstruction in order to synthesize why having multiple ideas on how to approach the same event might impact it's effect on the nation.
