HD-faviconWould you like a broadly interpretive research proposition that will bring your students’ passions to life? Take a tour of the United States in 1830. Students will get an open-ended research question that no one can call boring. Students will build information gathering skills, stake claims, refute others and share their vision of a democratic America. Use your school’s own media center resources and your primary course textbooks to find out what was really going on in the early years of the American Republic. History isn’t a dull and passive march through facts. It’s the great questions of life! Suggested time: 6-8 class periods.
