----------------------------

In this highly-engaging and very Common Core focused lesson, students analyze three different speeches to understand the competing plans for southern Reconstruction following the American Civil War!

Students delve into President Lincoln's Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction to understand the Presidential plan for Reconstruction. Students then contrast that to President Andrew Johnson's own plan for the southern states. Finally, students understand the different motivations of the Radical Republicans for analyzing a speech made by Thaddeus Stevens, and the harsh plan they offered by the south.

Students complete a graphic organizer as they dissect each document, and conclude with an activity geared at placing each student in the shoes of the writer!

This resource includes a paper in-class version and a 1:1 Google compatible version to be used in conjunction with Google Classroom. Just follow the included instructions for how to access the Google version, then share the resource through Google or assign via Google Classroom. This will allow students to type directly into the document!

Very thought-provoking, engaging, and demanding!
