Activity Overview


Developing historians should also have the ability to evaluate laws. During Reconstruction, several laws and amendments were enacted to help guarantee rights to the newly emancipated. The Civil Rights Act of 1866 was one of the first to attempt to guarantee these rights in a tumultuous post-war society.

Using a storyboard, students can evaluate the document for perspective, audience, and significance. Consider having students take the perspective of one of the various Civil War figures. Using the suggested guidelines of main idea, setting, evidence, perspective, and significance, students will develop a deep understanding of the Civil Rights Act of 1866 and how it impacted society.


Extended Activity

Students can create the same analysis for another law or amendment during the Civil War and Reconstruction. By comparing the aims of two or more documents, students will be able to gain a better understanding of the different ways each document attempted to remedy the issues at hand.
