U.s. history          civil war contract          

In your past history classes you should have studied the Civil War in great detail.  Because of this we are going to quickly review the Civil War using a contract system.  You will be asked to become an expert in one area of the war and share that with the class.  It is preferable to do this in groups, but if you wish I can assign an individual project to you instead.



Individual assignment (everyone must do this)

5)    War at sea and in the West


 Each group will need to present their information with some sort of visual.  You may wish to write a magazine, make a video documentary, write a newspaper, make a graphic timeline, develop a photo essay or anything else that is approved by the teacher.  Your project will be graded on information.  Make sure all pertinent information from the textbook has been used.  Creativity will be looked at and group/class participation. Projects are due 9/16.



There will be no test with this chapter.  Your questions and project will be graded like a take home exam.  You will have a week in class so use the time wisely to do the questions very well and develop a good project.
