The social family of instructional models is powerful. You work it nicely intothe framework with the role playing strategy.

All of activities can become group based. Just as groups of families came out west, so can groups work together perhaps groups focusing on each town.

The students will have access to the rubrics.
The TARGET=_BLANK command has been added.
