I CAN: DESCRIBE THE IMPORTANCE OF THE COMPROMISE OF 1850.
FOCUS QUESTION: STATE YOUR OPINION: WAS IT A MISTAKE FOR THE NORTH TO EVER TRY TO FIND COMPROMISES WITH THE SOUTH OVER THE ISSUE OF SLAVERY?
Last week, we focused on the Women's movement of the 1800s. Leaders such as Susan B. Anthony, Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton sought to gain equal rights for women and faced stiff resistance. The Seneca Falls Convention was an important moment for the movement, including the drafting of the Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions. Despite these heroic efforts, all American women did not gain the right to vote until 1920 when the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified.
This week, we will focus once again on the increasing tension between Northern and Southern states over the issue of slavery.
Rising tensions between the North and South over the issue of slavery led to attempts by the two regions to find compromise. These compromises would only delay the eventual conflict the two sides would fight--the Civil War.
Today we will focus on the Compromise of 1850.
Read the text carefully! Good luck!
I Can: Foster an understanding of segregation in America during the 1960s
Break down the word prejudice and notice the similarity to the word prejudge.
It means preconceived notions about a person or group that are not based on accurate information.
Throughout American history, various groups have struggled as victims of prejudice.
• Institutional oppression: policies, laws, and rules coming from organizations or social associations that provide advantages for some groups of people, while disadvantaging others
• Individual oppression: actions and attitudes that reflect individual prejudice against a member or members of a group
Scholars will analyze primary source documents to gain an understanding of the social and cultural dynamics of different minority groups and their experiences in America in the 1960s.
