Course number and name: AFAS/HIST 348, The South since the Civil War

Author of lesson plan: Tyina Steptoe

Background/context for lesson: Students analyzed digital primary sources related to U.S. southern history from 1890 to 1970. These lessons occurred during Unit 2 (the “Jim Crow” era) and Unit 3 (the Civil Rights era) of the course.

Time needed: We spent approximately half an hour in class discussing documents on Booker T. Washington on February 22, and approximately half an hour in class on Ida B. Wells on March 15. The rest of the assignments occurred outside of class.

Learning objectives: 

  • Conduct historical research, including the appropriate use of primary sources, to provide properly documented evidence to support an argument.
  • Use other course materials (lectures, documentaries, assigned readings) to provide historical context for the primary sources.
