Lessons on the Ideas of Democracy

Facing History and Ourselves has produced a series of free videos and accompanying lessons that introduce a rigorous study of the Reconstruction era into American history classrooms. The video series presents interviews with scholars who offer insight into this complex history and address questions of freedom, justice, equality, and citizenship that are at the heart of the Reconstruction era. Facing History has also developed a complete unit with 16 lessons and many primary source documents from the era. The unit, available in print, ebook, and downloadable PDF, guides students through a deep exploration of the Reconstruction era while enhancing their ethical decision making and capacity for emotional growth. The writing strategies that supplement the unit will help teachers to guide students through the process of organizing their ideas and crafting a thesis in response to the writing prompts; writing and editing drafts; sharing their essays; and reflecting on the writing process.
