Oregon History Timeline Project

We have been working on the first round of our Oregon History Timeline Project. Several students began making timeline markers for round two. For this round we are expanding our timeline to include history that we have covered in other ways, such as during our Women's Day Teach-In and while reading The Watsons Go To Birmingham--1963. The following topics are up for grabs. You can use the links next to the topics to get started with your partner. Feel free to suggest addition topics.
