We encourage students and educators to visit the Evanston History Center to view “Spirited: Prohibition in America.” The exhibit offers a range of topics to engage students, from women’s history and immigration to social activism and constitutional law.
The following lesson plans are available to download. Please feel free to tailor them according to your needs. And please share your work or your own lesson plans with us!
