Reconstruction Plans and Politics is a mini-lesson PowerPoint Presentation that uses differentiated instruction. This PowerPoint has two versions, basic and enriched which is why it will work from 5th -11th grade. In the past I've had co-teachers that have had their own room so we split our class up and each taught at a certain ability level. During periods that I didn't have a co-teacher I chose the ability level that was best for each class.
It goes through much of the politics of Reconstruction including: Lincoln's 10% plan, Johnson's Plan, Congressional Plan, Freedman's Bureau, 13th amendment, 14th amendment, 15th amendment, military districts, assassination of Lincoln, impeachment of Johnson, Amnesty Act, Civil Rights Act of 1866, Wade-Davis Bill, and the end of Reconstruction.
There is a differentiated instruction lesson plan that goes with this PowerPoint but it is sold separately. You can find it by following this link: Reconstruction Plans and Politics Lesson Plan
