Document-Based Assessments are helpful in developing critical thinking

W2D4 This week’s question:
● Read Judges 12:1-6, 2 Samuel 2:12-31 What were some of the effects of these ‘Civil Wars’ in Biblical times? Think of two connections between the Biblical wars and the American Civil War?
● Why was the Civil War fought? Was it over states’ rights or slavery? Explain your answer.
● Reply to at least two of your classmate’s postings.
Classmates’ posts (reply to this two) R, Anthony: Some of the effects the Civil wars in biblical times created, were they brought fear into others hearts knowing that they could be killed by the war. The wars
were connected because they both wanted freedom and the both wanted peace. The civil
war was fought for slavery because they wanted to change the laws for slavery so that
people may have more freedom than what they had with slavery going on.
M, McCall: One connection was the Battle of Refidim. That was when the Israelites fought the Amalek people, who where also from Israel. It’s like the Civil war which was America
vs America. Another connection was they fought the battle for freedom, like the Civil
war. The Israelites wanted freedom (promises land), therefore the purpose of the battle.
The Civil war was fought because people just could not get past their differences. Some
believed that the slaves should be freed, others not so much. Since they could not agree
they began to battle it out. Some believed that African Americans should have rights like
everyone else, others believed that they did not deserve them. So yes I do believe that
it was about states rights and slavery.
