I Can: Detail the Heroic Efforts of Abolitionists in the 1800s.
Focus Question: Predict: What type of treatment do you think many abolitionists faced as they fought for freedom for African Americans in the 1800s?
Yesterday we discussed how the origins of the abolitionist movement stretched back all the way to before the American Revolution. Yet, despite this fact, the nation's two most famous documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution made no mention of the evil institution of slavery.
Today, we will examine the role that abolitionist heroes like William Lloyd Garrison, Frederick Douglass, and Sojourner Truth played in trying to bring about an end to slavery.
Exit Question: What do you think civil rights heroes like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks could have learned from the work of abolitionists in the 1800s?
Topic: Cold War
I Can: Analyze the "Cuban Missile Crisis."
- In 1962 the Soviet Union put nuclear missiles in Cuba.
- The U.S. discovered this by spy satellite, put a blockade around Cuba with Navy warships, and demanded that the missiles be removed.
- For over a week, the U.S. and Soviet Union threatened each other; many people feared that another world war was about to begin – this time with nuclear weapons.
- In the end, the Soviet Union backed down and removed the missiles from Cuba.
