While pulling together the Thinkfinity collection of Emancipation Proclamation resources for the January feature, Celebrate the 150th Anniversary!, I learned so much about this interesting period of our history.  Please share these resources with your students.


Don't miss A'Lelia Bundles' blog, The specified item was not found.. You and your students will undoubtedly be hearing more in the news about the National Archive's limited showing of the original Emancipation Proclamation document.


Share your students' thoughts on these questions here:

  • Why do you think Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation? Were all slaves set free?
  • How would the world be different if the election of 1860 had turned out differently?
  • Why are the Gettysburg Address and the Emancipation Proclamation among the greatest documents of the United States?


What questions did your students ask that our Content Partners might help you answer?  We want to hear from you.
