Students take a stance on the Mexican American War and write a letter to the editor of their local newspaper. In the letter they must address 5 items, including but not limited to their perceptions of the causes of the war, the impact of Polk on the war, and the effect the war will have on America and the issue of slavery. The rubric is included but the point values are blank to accommodate your own grading systems.
This pairs well with these items:
Mexican-American War Review Activity
Westward Expansion Activity
President Polk Review Activity
