The Civil War and the Meaning of Liberty: A NERCVirtual2020 Workshop

3:00 pm — 5:00 pm
Online Workshop

Join the Choices Program at the free NERCVirtual2020 conference to explore the student readings, lessons, and videos in our Civil War and the Meaning of Liberty curriculum unit, which helps students consider the experiences of African Americans, women, and abolitionists during the war. Issues that drove the political confrontation over slavery and the meaning of liberty will also be explored.

We’ll try out an abbreviated lesson or two and discuss ways to adapt the unit to various classrooms.
