Mr. Mosier's 8th Grade American History Class
On Wednesday November 12th. Students in Mr. Mosier's 8th Grade American History Class students conducted a Westside Middle School Abolitionist Meeting to discuss what we should do in response to a new and stricter Fugitive Slave Act that was passed as part of the Compromise of 1850. Students took on the persona's of well known Abolitionists of the time, researched information about their beliefs and what they did for the Abolitionist cause, and talked with other student's looking for allies for four possible scenarios on how to respond to our fight to end Slavery. Students had to persuade each other what would be the best course of action to fight the Fugitive Slave Law.
