In this product students will be given answer the DBQ question: From the Civil War through the turn of the century, how did westward migration affect the United States?
In cooperative learning groups students will research primary source documents that relate to their westward expansion topics and that will help them answer the overall DBQ essay. After assembling the documents, students will write an essay to answer the DBQ question using 80% of the documents. The essay is a great alternative assessment for the westward expansion unit.
