Activity Overview


This activity can be used as either an introductory assignment or an exit assignment at the end of the unit. Students will interpret excerpts from the Emancipation Proclamation and articulate what each excerpt means to them. By allowing students to put the document into their own words and formulate their opinion or stance on specific excerpts, you will be able to see where students are at (great for meeting them in the middle for the rest of the unit). In turn, students will be better prepared for class discussions and further analysis activities.


Extended Activity

For an extended activity, have students take their personal interpretations and debate the success of the Emancipation Proclamation. Have students organize their ideas using a grid storyboard to better present their positions. They are to defend their position and interpretations with facts and logic.
