Task #4 – We will be breaking into groups today and each group will receive seven pieces of paper. Each with a primary cause for the Civil War on it. You will first identify any words you have problems with as well as list any questions you have after your first read through. We will then discuss the words and read through. Following this I want you to go to the front of the room and initial three of the seven corisponding boxes. This will be you way of voting for which three of the seven causes you feel are the most responsible for the Civil War.
