Jessica Marie's insight:

This is a great resource in terms of an online textbook, but the kids find it boring.

Tweets from Antebellum Era Social Reformers

APUSH students, here are the tweet highlights from our class activity over the past two days.  Use these messages to help you remember about the Antebellum Era Social Reformers.  Just think, if you can provide such specific information about a person and his/her philosophies within 140 characters then you should be able to do the same (on a larger scale) within your APUSH essays :-)
