Should I join the rush?
In this critical challenge, students review background information (accessed online) and examine primary and secondary source documents to identify the challenges and opportunities presented by the Klondike Gold Rush. Students then provide a recommendation to a fictional cousin as to whether or not he should travel to the Klondike to find work, using evidence from the source documents to justify the recommendation.
