Emancipation During and After the Civil War: Teaching with Primary Sources



Professional development topics:


Emancipation was a major step in the journey African Americans made from slavery toward freedom during and after the Civil War. In this program teachers will learn how to use primary sources such as political cartoons, photography and music to help students understand emancipation and how the transition from slavery to freedom changed the idea of citizenship in America. The program will feature classroom teachers using primary sources effectively with their students.
