Yikes! That's Part of Our State's History?

This writing across the curriculum lesson was created by Nevada teacher Lisa Larson during the NNWP's HistoryFix Workshop for Teachers.

Lisa considers this writing assignment to be appropriate for students in grades 5-8. She uses it with Nevada History but believes it would work when studying any state's history.
