Description: Mad Anthony Wayne and the Treaty of Greenville sets a sensitive and insightful stage for understanding U.S. Indian Policy in the 19th century. Passage of the Northwest Ordinance in 1787 sent American settlers into the Ohio Valley area at the rate of 10,000 a year. Problems protecting these settlers were among those that proved the weakness of the Articles of Confederation. Anthony Wayne's victory against the Indians at Fallen Timbers led to the Treaty of Greenville in 1795, which opened the Northwest Territory to white settlement. An added bonus is that since this lesson was designed with English Learners in mind, the primary sources highlight and link to key vocabulary.Standards 8.5.3 and 8.8.2

Description: Because of modern society's emphasis on education and the public school system that evolved in America, every child can attend school without cost. So it is difficult, at best, to understand the importance of Horace Mann (1796-1859). This unit of study about Mann is not strictly based on his remarkable life, but the advantages free public education provides students. Standard 8.6.5
