African-Americans in the American West

Students explore the westward movement of African Americans. In this social studies lesson plan, students view PBS specials on the westward movement, discuss them, then work in collaborative groups to research a subtopic of the movement. After completing the research, each group will create accompanying documents from the time period, then graph and analyze population figures of the time period.

Your site is extremely easy to maneuver, and your search engine sorts beautifully--down to the grade level and super-specific subject matter. As a graduate student, studying for my teacher's license, I've found great, creative inspiration in the content links on your site. I count on your site more than any other I've found to date.
