The Reconstruction Era and the Fragility of Democracy

How does society rebuild after extraordinary division and trauma, when the ideals and values of democracy are most vulnerable? We will explore this significant period in U.S. history when Americans were faced with the challenge of restoring a nation amid the social and political upheaval of the civil war.

 In this seminar you will:

  • Discover new interdisciplinary teaching strategies that reinforce historical and literacy skills
  • Learn current scholarship on the history of Reconstruction and new research focused on human behavior, group dynamics, and bias
  • Engage with classroom-ready multimedia resources and learn how to build a customized unit that meets your curriculum objectives
  • Discover new teaching strategies that help students interrogate text, think critically, and discuss controversial issues respectfully
  • Receive a free copy of The Reconstruction Era and the Fragility of Democracy

After this seminar you will:

  • Become part of the Facing History educator network, with access to a rich slate of educator resources, including units and lesson plans, study guides, and multimedia
  • Be able to borrow books and DVDs through our online lending library at no cost
