This informative site explores the life and works of Harriet Beecher Stowe - whose political and literary influences spurred the abolitionist movement and contributed to the outbreak of the Civil War. You have to dig a bit, but there are some interesting gems here that would add a spark to a class discussion on causes of the Civil War, or depth to a literary unit on Mark Twain. There are lesson plans (see Teacher and Student Resources). Some of the printables at this site require Adobe Acrobat. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): civil war (145), lincoln (84), slavery (67)

In the Classroom

Have students compare Harriet Beecher Stowe to a powerful woman (of their choice) of the 21st century. Challenge students to create a wiki between Harriet Beecher Stowe and the woman that they learned about from today.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.
