This online course is designed to help students become more knowledgeable about Sacramento, California’s rich history. Through this course, students will not only learn about Sacramento’s history, but will understand how to enhance their social studies curriculum with high-quality technological applications. They will recognize how Sacramento became the metropolis it is today through the study of Native American Indians, Sutter’s Fort, Old Town Sacramento, the Gold Rush, the Big Four, Theodore Judah, The Port of Sacramento, and Sacramento’s growth over the years. Students will experience creating their own digital book. The historical knowledge gained and experience using technology to create an end product can all be taken right back to the classroom.
