Introductory Workshop

Maine Council for the Social Studies Annual Conference // The Civil War and the Meaning of Liberty: A Choices Program

Augusta Civic Center
Augusta, Maine

Join the Choices Program in an exploration of our newest unit, The Civil War and the Meaning of Liberty. In this workshop, teachers will be introduced to the Choices Program’s expanded U.S. History Series and take a deep dive into the Civil War unit and some of the 11 lessons in this unit. The workshop provides opportunity for a rich discussion relating to classroom applications of the student text, the videos, and the lessons, which include abolitionist profiles, political cartoons, geography, congressional debates, food shortages, photographs, letters, battles, and more!
