Students analyze Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation from the Civil War, answer 7 questions, and complete 3 creative tasks. This would be great for a sub and the answers are included where appropriate.
Sample questions include:
--In your own words, who would be accepted into the Union military forces?
--Explain how Lincoln expected the free blacks to live their lives. Why do you think he expected this?
--How does Lincoln further justify the validity of this document? Why do you think he had to keep reinforcing and justifying its message?
Snippets of the tasks include:
--3 different types of black Americans reacting to the proclamation
--predicting a variety of American futures within a newspaper article with other requirements
--an advertisement with a specific angle
