    I wish I was at NCSS to especially attend the “You’re the Curator” session. My students are currently doing something like that for an imagined George Washington Presidential Library. They are to create an exhibit based on one of three challenges he faced — namely the Whiskey Rebellion, struggles over the west with Native Americans (e.g. Fallen Timbers), and problems with Europe (e.g impressment and Proclamation of Neutrality.

    That sounds like a really interesting project for your students, Steven. If we have any shareable resources from the “You’re the Curator” session, we will be sure to post them!
