This WebQuest will take students 2 to 3 class periods. Depending on availability of computers, students can complete a process at home, or the students can be broken into groups of 2. Students will need access to a Word Processor, and the Internet. Students will also need previous knowledge on the causes of the Civil War, and slavery. If the project is completed in school, the students need to have 1 of the processes completed each day, and on the third day hand-in all their completed work. During the WebQuest activity, the teacherís role is to walk around to make sure students are on task, answer questions, and help with any technology problems.
