To study the growth and development of the United States between 1783 and 1860, using a variety of assignments and reference sources.
2-3 class periods
Each student will read through a list of assignments on the growth and development of the U.S. between 1783 and 1860 that they might enjoy doing. Some of the 25 assignments will earn the student 10 points, some are worth 15 points, and the others will earn the student 20 points each.
Class members must choose to do at least one assignment in each point category. Each student has to do enough assignments so that their points will add up to at least 100.
My students like this lesson because they get to do what interests them the most.
Teacher Instructions are included.
