Students will understand the implications and details of the Civil War and the Reconstruction.
I have taught the history of the Civil War experience for 4 years to 4th, 5th and 6th grade students. In addition, I have taught all core subject areas for over 18 years in the public school system. 
Students will have weekly homework assignments to complete, which includes vocabulary, questions and answers, discussion questions and a project to complete for week 4. 
A handout will be provided to the students each week for the class.
