What was the effect of the Second Great Awakening on America?
Why did the reform movement gain momentum?
How did Americans’ attitudes toward slavery change because of the Second Great Awakening?
The Second Great Awakening was a religious revival movement that swept America from the 1800’s to 1840’s. Aside from the religious aspect, the Second Great Awakening also sparked many social movements that revolutionized America, like the temperance movement, and abolitionism. It will be up to you and your group to create a virtual 3-D book that narrates the events that caused the Second Great Awakening and its effects on America’s social and political systems.
Step 1: Create Groups and Conduct Research
Form groups of four students.
Each group member is to be assigned a topic to research.
Take notes on all the important events of the Second Great Awakening, collect images that you want to use for your portion of the presentation, and answer all relevant questions that relate to your topic.
Step 2: Create Your Zooburst 3D book
Watch the tutorial on how to create a zooburst 3D book. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0V2CCHFtDk.
Once all of the research (information and pictures) has been completed, go onto Zooburst, sign up, and begin working on your book. Zooburst: http://zooburst.com/
Each group member is responsible for their assigned part and must work together to properly complete this assignment.
The book needs to be organized, attractive (good use of font, color, graphics) and no grammatical errors.
The book needs to have:
A cover page with title, team members’ names.
At least 6 pages.
Work cited page at the end of the book.
At least three pictures per page.
Book is organized in chronological order explaining:
America before the Second Great Awakening
Direct causes of the Second Great Awakening
Religious leaders and groups that gained power during the Second Great Awakening
The influence of the Second Great Awakening on society, minorities and politics.
The lasting legacy of the Second Great Awakening on American society, religion and politics
Step 3: Presentation and Evaluation
Each group will present their Zooburst book to the class.
Each group member will fill out the group assessment evaluation and the self-assessment form and turn it in after the presentation.
