U.S. Westward Expansion: Common Assignment 1 For Teachers
The Common Assignment 1 section (for teachers) of History Unit: U.S. Westward Expansion helps students investigate key events and ideas in westward expansion during the antebellum period. Students will use primary and secondary sources, maps, images, and an LDC debate-focused module to build evidentiary claims, identify multiple perspectives, and consider causal relationships. For easy use and customization, files are available in PDF and Word.
In the first part of our Progress in Action campaign, we highlighted inspiring stories of educators who collaborate with their peers, ask their students for feedback on their teaching, and try new approaches to help all students succeed.
Being able to read well opens whole new worlds to students. Literacy is crucial to mastery of any subject and to success in college and career. But it is also a door to the imagination, to stories, and to knowledge about the world—a way to experience a full and rich life.
