Product Description
***This is a personal favorite of mine because it seriously addresses a question that is still debated among many Americans: WHY did the southern states REALLY secede from the Union?***

In this activity, students are placed in small groups (3 members each) and given a guiding question. Each student is given a different primary source document and uses the worksheet to guide their analysis. Then, using reciprocal teaching, each student "teaches" their document to his or her group members. Finally, the group works together to answer the guiding question by creating a thesis statement and defending it with evidence from the documents.

Instructions for the activity are provided on the first page.
