World War I trench warfare

World War I trench warfare was a devastating experience for most soldiers. Much of a unit on this topic is spent exploring the daily lives of soldiers in the trenches.

This quick clip could be used in several ways: asking students to document what they see as a reporter, describing how they believe the soldiers feel, writing a letter home as a soldier based on what is in the video, writing a journal entry, etc.

Fugitive Slave Act of 1850

The controversial Fugitive Slave Act in 1850 was one of several compromises made during the tenuous antebellum period.

We have included a copy of the cartoon as well as questions and answers.
