Explore how the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation affected everyday individuals in the Civil War era. Learners are given the opportunity to read and evaluate primary and secondary source material, and then to compose a writing assessment from the perspective of a historical character. While there is less step-by-step direction in the lesson plan, the guidelines do offer an outline and good material for a smaller unit. Given the wide range of primary source material offered by the links, save time by choosing particular sources rather than having the class browse the sites on their own.
- Links to valuable collections of primary and secondary source material
