    well as being standards based.
    His plan is to jigsaw parts of the material culture and track changes over time with the students explaining why changes occur. These would include (but not be limited to) tombstones, church design, house design, transportation, industry and power, entertainment and food. The new course would be dependent on students relating these changes over time to actual photos and artifacts.

    Lesson Topic:
    Summary:
    John is interested in working on creating a course on Local History. Rather than creating a single lesson, we worked on designing the course that is steeped in local history as well as standards based. We worked on creating a central theme and are designing problem-based learning activities that support this theme.

    Summary: Students will review and evaluate their own knowledge of the Missouri Compromise, the Compromise of 1850, the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, and the Dred Scott decision through a collaborative GoogleDocs presentation. The assignment workload will be divided equally between partners and will be worked on simultaneously, cooperatively, and competitively (each student will represent a different sectional viewpoint on each item). Each piece of legislation/law regarding slavery will be discussed in terms of its provisions, Northern & Southern views, and eventual consequences. Students will then be charged with the task of synthesizing an original compromise on the issue of slavery. This will then be outlined and presented in a 4-5 slide GoogleDocs presentation in front of the class. Functioning as a mock congress, the class will then proceed to a debate and vote on the various compromise proposals.
