This lesson will not only provide you with a web quest but also discussion and extension lesson activities. The bulk of this lesson requires students to read information from a primary source found online as a means of building their background knowledge about the topic. Students will show their understanding by answering various open-ended questions related to the Compromise of 1850.
Some of these questions include
What Key factors set the stage for the Compromise of 1850?
Why was a compromise needed?
What were the main laws included in the Compromise of 1850?
This is a perfect lesson for any educator who would like students to use various resources or just needed a lab/library day to get caught up on grading.
