Role Playing US History Project

The gadget spec URL could not be found
Our AP US History teacher is using Google Sites for an online role playing and research assignment that focuses on the controversy of the slavery issue and the meaning of freedom in antebellum America. Students are able to view key primary sources provided by the instructor, insert biographical information on their characters, engage in dialog with the other role players in the class, respond to the lesson questions, add graphics and links of their own, ask questions, respond to comments of the instructor, complete the student assessment, and submit the reflection assignment.

Each year the teacher will make a new site from the saved site template.
