Before beginning the project, check to make sure all the links are working.
We have suggested “newspaper” topics for each site. Feel free to adapt them as appropriate.
Indian Removal site.
This serves as a good introductory site for research by students and teachers.
Historical overview of Indian removal.
This site would be a good place to start research.
Chronology of events.
This site would serve as a way for teachers to make up quizzes and test materials.
The teacher could give quizzes from the timelines of events.

Suggestion: Have students use quotations from Jackson’s speeches to either bolster their argument for or against Indian removal.
This site contains the actual text of the Indian Removal Act of 1830.
Quotations from this site would be useful also.
