How are you teaching about the Civil War in your classroom?

The Newark Museum would like to know how educators around the country are teaching about the events of the 1860s during the time of the American Civil War.  What topics do you cover?  How do you approach a topic so large?


To supplement classroom learning, the museum has produced curriculum material for teachers that utilizes artifacts and artworks found in the Newark Museum collection to teach about the effect of the war at home, on African Americans, on women, and on the President.  Lesson plans, links, and discussion topics can be found at the Civil War Sesquicentennial hosted by the Newark Museum.
