Reconstruction Vocabulary

Reconstruction Comic Planning Sheet + Rubric

This lesson was taught in my fourth grade Practicum B experience during the Social Studies block. The objective of the lesson was for the students to create their own comic depicting the effects of Reconstruction on life in Virginia, including a title, a beginning, middle, and end, at least two characters, at least four vocabulary terms, and colorful illustrations. Given the planning sheet/rubric and the list of vocabulary terms, the students were able to independently work on their comics as I monitored and supported as necessary. Afterwards, students who wished to share were given the opportunity to read aloud their comic for the class. The students were better able to understand the Reconstruction period and its effects of segregation and “Jim Crow” on life in Virginia for American Indians, whites, and African Americans.
