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 Compromise of 1850.
At the end of the lesson, students are expected to answer the following questions:
● 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?
Extension plans are also offered as alternatives for classrooms with more time per lesson or as extension opportunities for advanced students.
This is the perfect grab and go lesson for educators. They can use to get caught up on a grading or even if they just need a substitute filler assignment.
