This is a very useful resource to help students structure their revision for an end of unit assessment or their final exam. It has been organised Chronologically but also provides students with the information to revise thematically. I would suggest enlarging to A3 if possible and students have found this a great starting point to their revision as it sets out all of the topics covered in the American West on one sheet. Please note that this is a single sheet resource, but due to the time it took to produce this, I hope this reflects the asking price for it. Hopefully it can last you many years.
