Day in Review:
Today began with a short vocabulary builder exercise. When discussed in class the perceptions students had regarding why the Civil War was fought. We then looked at the status of Free and Slave states in 1860 when the crisis began. Finally, we read the secessionist documents from South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, Texas, and Virginia and filled in a graphic organizer chart. Students were given reflection questions to answer for homework (due on Friday). Anything not finished in class is homework, due on Friday.
