Civil War Unit. Using Primary Sources in the Classroom.
Alabama Dept. of Archives and History, Montgomery.
This teaching unit, "Civil War Unit," is the fourth of a series of 10 units about Alabama state history, part of a project designed to help teachers integrate the use of primary source materials into their classrooms. Although the units are designed to augment the study of Alabama, they are useful in the study of U.S. history, world history, and the social studies in general. Each unit contains background information for the teacher and consists of several lessons. Lessons contain learning objectives, suggested activities, and documents. This unit is divided into three sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Lesson 1: Alabama's Saltworks" (Guidelines for Analyzing a Written Document; six primary source documents); and (3) "Lesson 2: Juliet Opie Hopkins: Superintendent of Alabama's Hospitals in Virginia" (Judge Arthur Frances Hopkins; Juliet Ann Opie Hopkins; eight primary source documents).
