Civil War Research Project

Next week, we'll start our individual research projects.  These will involve two class periods for research, then one/two class periods for creating your final product. You will have a choice of what your final product will be!  Look at my post "19 Ideas For Sharing What You Learned."  If you need some other ideas, come talk to me. The idea is that I want YOU to have the freedom to show me the content however you'd like (remember the different ways we presented our reading book project 1st semester).  I want you to be creative and figure out the best way for you to include the details necessary.  We will go over the grading rubric together in the next few days.

Below are the terms from which you will choose.  I prefer to not have a lot of people doing the same term, so we'll assign terms together.  You should have four or five preferences that you think you want to study, in case one or more are selected before it's your turn.
