Civil War Lesson Plans
As everyone knows, I am not a teacher, but in light of this week's post on my Civil War education in Pittsburgh, I thought I would pass along this link to Civil War Lesson Plans over at the Civil War Preservation Trust website. As you can see, the CWPT has put together a wealth of material to help educators design lessons for students in grades 4 through 12. The plans cover many great topics, ranging from the U.S. Colored Troops to the life of the common soldier. These are the types of topics I had in mind when I urged schools to teach students all aspect of the war, no matter how difficult. I'd be interested in hearing from any teachers that are among my readers on how you approach the Civil War in your classroom.
