This unit will connect students to our previous lesson on Reconstruction. It will expand on and continue our analysis and research of the 15th Amendment. In addition, students will investigate and discuss the 19th Amendment along with federal and state legislation affecting the right of people to vote. The unit also has an advocacy lesson on the third day where students will be asked to debate issues affecting voting rights in America.
