This no prep summary is a wonderful way to introduce students to the period of Reconstruction. The summary covers the major events, key terms and figures of Reconstruction. My class is textbook free, so I use the summary as an introduction to the unit. The summary is one page long with a second page of response questions and a third page which is the answer key. Everything you need is included! The questions include graphic organizers, charts, cause and effect questioning, and short answer. The following events, terms and people are included in the summary:
The goals of Reconstruction
Abraham Lincoln (and his assassination)
Robert E. Lee
Civil Rights Act of 1866
Election of 1876
Removal of Federal Troops in 1877
Jim Crow Laws
Plessy v. Ferguson
