Preview: People of the West Project!
Exams are often times the best way for a teacher to assess/determine whether or not their students understand the material. However, with the invasion of the evil STAAR Empire on the horizon, I figured you might be pretty fed up with tests. So I've decided to give you an opportunity to show me how much you know about Westward Expansion in an exciting experiential project instead! Below, you will find detailed information and instructions, as well as suggestions and helpful hints for everything. Enjoy :)
