U.S. History II  - Period 1: 
Essential Questions:

-How do we think like an Historian?
-Has the West been romanticized?
-Does racial equality depend on government action?
-Can the "white man's conquest" of Native Americans be justified?

1. Romanticizing the West Activity:
   The class will break up into different groups of student in a jigsaw group and they will investigate specific website that I have selected to build an understanding of Romanticizing the West. Everyone in the group must pick ONE primary source from the link below once you have been put into groups.  Then every individual in the group will be responsible for filling out the Images of the West analysis and then compare and contrast all of the images the entire group has collected within the group. The group will then pick one of the primary sources that you all feel has the best potential to illustrate a clear perspective of what the West was supposed to look like for the entire class and the GROUP WILL be responsible for presenting that primary source image on the big screen using the projector.
