StudySC Just Keeps Getting Better
StudySC continues to improve.
Each grade level in StudySC now features a "History After 1865" section that includes information for K-12 students on Reconstruction politics, life in the textile mills, local and national civil rights activists, and life in the modern "New South." Each grade level has unique material, and it's not just for the K-12 crowd. Anyone can learn from these librarian vetted, and K-12 curriculum approved, links. Try one or more: Elementary School; Middle School; and/or High School.
I always test drive the digital content I share with you in Connections. In the case of the High School "History after 1865" section there are two articles directly relevant to the history, culture, and environment of Beaufort District:
1. "A Word of Warning: A Former Slave Urges Constitutional Caution" in which Civil War hero Robert Smalls asks the governor not to disenfranchise many African American (and poor white) voters by using a poll tax and literacy test to vote.
2. Henry McMillan, a newly freedman gives testimony about his life as a slave on Eustis Plantation on Lady's Island.
A delightful new feature is the "SC Glossary" section which includes definitions for terms such as "beach music," "carpetbagger," "scalawag," and "grits."
