Welcome to the Civil War! There could not be a more exciting period in American History. Within this unit we’ll be looking at the differences between the Northern and Southern sections; major leaders and battles; and how people lived.
There will be media for you to create and a short paper about what you did. Because a part of this class is online, some of our group discussions will be online also. We’ll review rules and expectations in the beginning and at the end of the unit watch Pickett’s Charge from the DVD “Gettysburg” and eat some hardtack.
Let’s have fun!

Instructions: The Civil War: 1861 to 1865

Students will write a summary (1 pages double spaced, 12 point font, Arial or Times New Roman) and complete a PowerPoint or Movie Maker on their research. The PowerPoint/Movie Maker will express what the student wrote in their summary. THE SUMMARY MUST BE TURNED IN BEFORE STARTING YOUR MEDIA PRESENTATION! Follow directions, use your time wisely; and ask appropriate questions about your topic. The topic will be provided to you. There will be library time, computer time, and classroom instruction provided by teacher. You will be graded on your use of time, maturity, as well as, your paper and presentation. WHAT YOU CAN’T COMPLETE IN CLASS IS HOMEWORK!
March 10: A lot to do! You should have your topic picked out. Start picking out material to read to learn about you subject. Take notes and start thinking about/writing your summary. It'll be word processed and turned in at the end of the day Monday the 14th. Instructions are above.
March 14: Turn in summary at the end of class--add me to your Google Apps (Share the document with me, if you don't know how ask me or a friend)
March 15: I've check a number of the summaries but not all. Start working on your presentation, which is due on Friday.
March 28: We've had a week off! I know there was some issues with the computers on last Friday. Finish your Civil War presentation today!
Either E-mail it to me in Google Apps or share with me. For those doing Windows Movie Maker-e-mail it to me as an attachment.
