Classroom Considerations

  • Requires devices with an Internet connection or printed copies of the handout
  • The Word doc and PowerPoint are large and may take longer than normal to load
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information

  • Provides all needed materials including worksheets and the presentation
  • Uses a website for research on John Brown that includes photographs, maps, and other useful information

  • Suggests using test questions and gives some direction, but it requires that teachers write the test questions
