Creating Civil War Multimedia

What was it like to live through the Civil War? Learners investigate the question by creating multimedia presentations. With a scaffolded approach that includes research, creating a biopic poem, storyboard, and then polished multimedia capstone, scholars consider the point of view of various figures during the era, ranging from Clara Barton to Frederick Douglas.
