Students in Mr. Hendricks and Ms. Decker’s American Studies class are wrapping up a unit on the “American Dream”. Students learned to analyze various documents starting with our nation's birth through the settlement of the U.S. Plains. Using photographs taken in the late 1860’s, students worked together to walk through a “photo gallery” by Solomon Butcher to evaluate his reliability and the impact of the Homestead Act. Next, the students will explain the American Dream in regards to expansion and ambition over the course of our Nation’s history.
