This PowerPoint on Reconstruction will not only save you time but engage your students as well. This PowerPoint covers all the *Virginia Standards of Learning for Reconstruction for middle school, but may be adapted to fit the needs of other states and high school as well. I teach this unit after Geography and before Westward Expansion.
There are films from www.unitedstreaming.com that I had inserted but you'll need to physically go to the website, download and insert it into the Power Point where I have them - copyright laws! It's pretty easy. I really hope you enjoy what I've put together.
