Mr. McAninch brought history students down to research different topics dealing with imperialism. Students needed to find print resources about the Boer War, US and Panama Canal, US and Hawaii, Japanese imperialism, and other topics they could choose from a list. They really had to think hard about which books to look in and use indexes since most of the topics were located in books about larger issues (US in the 1950s for example). The students will used DISCUS later to find reliable electronic resources for their topic.
