This activity requires students to evaluate components of the Radical Republican and President Johnson's Reconstruction plans. Students are given a grading rubric and are asked to justify their grading on each issue.
This activity can be printed out onto card stock as a response group table activity or you can project slides as a whole class activity.
Bellringer and flashback review is also provided to introduce topic, as well as a slide of introductory notes. After the activity, wrap up questions follow.
At the end of the Plans activity, students are transitioned to consider the people affected by Reconstruction. Activity directions and a spectrum activity wrap up are then provided which go along with the "Reconstruction Cue Cards" I also have available in my TpT Store. In the block class, I am using both activities on the same day.
Designed for use in U.S. History.
