Evaluating the Impact of History and Government on Community

Sheila Miller and Lori C. Swiger, Nystrom Education

 

 

This session explores the following inquiry-based questions and similar community-based questions: What conditions in America led to the Haymarket riots? Did the boundaries created by the Congress of Vienna establish a more stable/unstable European community? What was the most significant impact to a society as a result of the Progressive Era? We apply disciplinary tools and concepts to evaluate sources and evidence to draw conclusions.
