The Reconstructing the South role play really got my students thinking about the varying perspectives from the Reconstruction era. After the enactment, we had a lengthy “debate” in which the students had to argue what the government should or should not do.

Students then were given the assignment to research the current immigration conflict and find opposing, varying attitudes today, especially focusing on refugees.  The Zinn Education Project role plays can easily be tied to modern issues.
