In this lesson, students use a guided reading to look at a report on the status of education in North Carolina in 1869, and discuss the reasons given then for why the Governor and Legislature should support educating North Carolina's children. They are provided an opportunity to compare and contrast the 1869 document against their own ideas about the civic duty to attend school through age sixteen, and its relative value to the state and the country.

All About Life
Conditions of Use:

A primary curriculum based around life and environmental science draws on children's natural curiosity to teach reading, math, and more.For students to be successful in the science curriculum, they must study science through "hands-on" experiences. I use their past experiences as well as present experiences that I help to create to teach the curriculum. Many children today have never climbed a tree, walked in the woods, or waded in a stream, and I think that is sad. When they have the opportunity to see and touch the natural world, they become excited about it, and I use that excitement to teach all areas of the kindergarten curriculum, not just science.

The US Government moved whole groups of Indians under harsh conditions. This trip became known as the Trail of Tears. Using this as a background students will explore and experiment with persuasive writing as they try to express the position of Cherokee leaders.
