Nat Turnerís Revolt and Its Effects

Culminating Assessment

The assessment will be broken into two days. On the first day, the students will be given a role to play in the Virginia Assembly. They will need to determine the position their given person would hold on the issue of Nat Turnerís rebellion. They will stand up and state their position to the legislature and once everyone has stated their view, they will vote on what action should be taken because of the revolt.

One the second day, the students will work with a partner to write a newspaper article or draw a cartoon from a perspective that a person of the time might have taken. They are to include quotes from the primary sources given to them earlier in the week in their articles.
