Selling of the West, or The Portrayal of Emigrant Travel on the Oregon Trail

Students compare and contrast the realistic and romantic art and literature about experiences on the Oregon Trail. Using this information, they compare their viewpoints and write messages on what they believe it was like on a trip down the Trail. They create a Hyperstudio project in groups to promote an area for traveling through.
