CWRGM Virtual Teacher Workshop

June 29, 2021

The Civil War & Reconstruction Governors of Mississippi (CWRGM) Virtual Teacher Workshop recruited educators from across the state to attend their workshop on June 29, 2021. During this workshop, Project Director Dr. Susannah J. Ural and veteran educators from Mississippi spent a significant amount of time contextualizing the documents found at the CWRGM website, and then split into groups to focus on areas that our veteran educator co-hosts selected prior to the event: Secession in Mississippi, Soldiers & the Battle Front, Civilians & the Home Front, and Emancipation. This workshop resulted in several lesson plans that address learning at the upper elementary, middle, and high school level (including AP U.S. History) and they are publicly available at the Lessons Plan page.
