Conduct your own research with the use of primary and secondary
documents found online and at Morley Library and the Lake
County Historical Society.
Use research findings to create your own experiential learning
unit. We will also discuss how the Common Core Standards
supports inquiry-based learning, formative assessment, self-assessment
