CIVIL WAR BATTLE RESEARCH PROJECT

 

Directions:

You and your partners are to research your assigned Civil War Battle. You need to research what specific strengths, weaknesses and strategies played a role in your battle, as well as the military actions, which took place there.  Your presentation will include a wiki story, podcast, visual component, class notes and bibliography. You will be graded on all components of this project. Your podcast will be a verbal explanation of life on the battlefield, the wiki will be the written component, and the a poster board will be the visual representation.

Podcast:

Your podcast must be recorded in a letter format. Your group will become a soldier on a battlefield and you are writing a letter home to your mother describing your experience. Each group will need to pick and podcast from either a northern soldier’s perspective or from a southern soldier’s perspective. Your group will be writing a collective letter that will be used for the podcast on our class wiki page. You will be graded on your individual performance based on how much you contribute to the letter. The letter is due on November 6th.

YOUR PODCAST/LETTER MUST INCLUDE:

•    Where was the battle?

•    When was the battle?

•    How long did the battle last?

•    Major Generals involved for both sides.

•    Who had the advantage and why?

•    Did the outcome of your battle affect the War?

•    What was life like on the battlefield?

•    Hardships you faced as a soldier.

•    How many men died.

YOU MUST INCLUDE A BIBLIOGRAPHY WITH YOUR PROJECT, SEE THE ATTACHED BIBLIOGRAPHY SHEET FOR HELP.
