PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Powerful lesson that gives students a perspective on the root cause of riots...deep seated anger based on feeling like a mistreated, second-class citizen.

This lesson compares the New York City Draft Riots of 1863 with the 2015 riot in Baltimore.

Students will see two short video clips and do two close reading activities.

They will then complete a compare/contrast Venn Diagram and write a reflective paragraph.

This package contains both articles, the student reflective writing handout, and the PowerPoint which guides the teacher and students through discussions, contains the embedded video clips, and has embedded timers for the close reading activities.

DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY to connect Civil War history with today's headlines and give students an empathetic understanding of what causes us to riot when our anger spills out and gets the better of us.
