This activity has students look at both Andrew Johnson's Presidential Reconstruction Plan and the Radical Republican's Plan.
Students will at first read over each plan and answer the three essential questions by summarizing the main points. They will then be asked to give each aspect of the plan a grade and comment on why they did so.
Once they have completed both plans, they will be asked to create their own plan. For differentiation, group assignments are included and can be used.
This allows students to formulate their own opinions about Reconstruction.
Hope you enjoy!
