Jessica Jaeger -- Understanding Why Slavery was Supported
Omro Elementary School teacher Jessica Jaeger will develop her project to help her students understand why some people thought slavery was a good idea. Fifth graders think slavery is bad and they can’t imagine anyone in today’s time supporting it. By using three major topics,-- Dred Scott, the Fugitive Slave Act, and the Emancipation Proclamation -- Jessica would like to take students on the journey of the nature of freedom, how it changes for each group involved as the years progress. She will incorporate the Civil War into this concept of race as well.
