HS US History II Research Project
Students in Mr Emerton's US History II classes spent several
days in the Media Center researching people, events, and
organizations in existence during the roaring twenties.
Students used a combination of print and electronic
resources including books, eBooks, databases, and web
sources. Curated content was introduced to students via a
Pear Deck presentation. Electronic exit tickets were used to
evaluate the effectiveness of instruction.
