This is a teacher-created "newspaper" from the Reconstruction era that provides a general overview for a number of significant Reconstruction topics such as the Freedman's Bureau, sharecropping system, rise of the Ku Klux Klan, Black Codes, and southern anger toward carpetbaggers and scalawags. The newspaper also comes with questions based upon the reading and would be ideal as a supplement to your Reconstruction unit. It can be used as an in-class reading activity, a homework assignment, or a review assignment toward the end of a unit. Both documents are appropriate for middle school reading levels.
