Note about Timeline link:
You will find this feature located on the weekly Research pages in the Technology Transforms the Northwest – 1880s to 1940 section of the website. [Open the link, use the horizontal scroll bar at bottom of page to move to the dates you’d like to browse.]
We are pleased to link you to this great resource developed by Peter Mays. Take a look at the dates for the particular era in history that is your focus of study. We suggest you use this timeline as a weekly reference.
Consider how you might add a layer of Northwest history. Or, as an assignment for students, have them create their own timeline with three tracks: one for the Northwest, one for the U.S., and one for the world. This device will offer opportunities for connecting discrete bits of knowledge about history in a way that creates lots of “aha!” experiences.
