Offering troves of easy-to-implement simulations, this book focuses on bringing to life a seminal era in U.S. history. Students engage in activities such as debating the Dred Scott case from different perspectives, playing a game simulating the Battle of Kaymat, and creating Civil War fan folds. Step-by-step lesson plans and a how-to guide for teachers are accompanied by reproducible handouts containing planning documents, templates, graphic organizers, and background information. The book’s final section describes a culminating activity to widen the context and incorporate civic engagement in today’s society. Comes with a CD-ROM containing all the book’s reproducible handouts, as well as correlation charts.
