This collection is a series of lessons about the causes of the Civil War. There are a variety of activities including an examination of whether John Brown was a hero or a villain, analysis of political cartoons and maps relating to sectionalism, and detailed worksheets that cover events such as Bleeding Kansas, the Fugitive Slave Law, and the Compromise of 1850. Some of the lessons were created for use with Smartboard technology and the notebook viewer can easily be downloaded to make the materials accessible. There are pdf’s of teacher lesson plans that identify standards, procedures, and links to relevant materials.
