Unit Notes

This Unit Plan and accompanying materials goes with Prentice Hall’s America: History of Our Nation chapter 8. The materials work well with the past and the new editions of the book. You could also use it with other books. These materials could be sized appropriately to also use with an Interactive Student Notebook. I include the Indiana State Standards with this plan. You can take this info and display it in any way that works for your district.

Section outline notes are left in Word format. You can edit them to your liking and/or create student guided reading copies from them. Other documents are in PDF format

For further study, I give the students a choice of enrichment assignments. Students get a choice of topic (usually four choices) with a choice of assignment. These assignments are designed to be worth 25 points and should take about 90 minutes to complete over a period of time. They are typically of varying degrees of difficulty. I left these in Word format for you to edit to your liking. I distributed them electronically to my students so the research links would work for them.

Enrichment assignments included with this chapter:
The Whiskey Rebellion (a paper)
A biography: George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams (could be a paper or a scrapbook project)
