Everyone will be assigned a number. You will need to research the battles that coincide with your number and interpret them from your side of the war.
Goal: Through inductive study of the Civil War, students will gain a greater understanding of significance of its role in American History. Students will use this knowledge to create a story map depicting events of the Civil War.
What is a Story Map?
A story map is visual interpretation of people, events and items studied during a unit. The purpose of a story map is to convey the meaning of events using as few words as possible. You may use words, but make your words count. A story map is not a research paper, but a mapping out of the things you have learned in a visual form. Pictures, drawings, maps, charts, and other graphics are used along with text to convey meaning.
Over a course of our 2 week study of the American Civil War and Reconstruction, students will create a story map using Pages. The details are explained below, and students will have class time to work on their project. REMEMBER THOUGH... class time will be given, but most students will need to schedule outside work time as well.
Below is the project outline. You DO need to include all of the red and blue sections. You DO NOT necessarily have to cover every bullet underneath. Include the information that is most needed to convey your thoughts and present the best of your information.
