'What’s done cannot be undone.'

We are paying particular attention to nineteenth century America this term. Our first project in this realm is entitled 'Antebellum, War, and Reconstruction in the American Identity'.

After researching three of these people well enough to briefly present on one of them, each student will rate a mixed-gender trio 1-3 in order of interest. Once assigned the subject, each will plan a road trip that incorporates important locations in that person's life. 

The trip is to includes at least three related stops. The budget, set at $200 a day, will be calculated and tracked using Google Spreadsheet.

These trips will be shared publicly, along with our initial themed maps of the United States and our whole-class antebellum-reconstruction map, on the afternoon of Wednesday, September 30.
