Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

US Territorial Acquisitions


Manifest Destiny was an idea first articulated in 1845 and popular in the United States during the early part of the 19th century.  This doctrine expressed the belief that the expansion of the United States throughout the Americas was inevitable and justified - by God according to some. This idea was championed by Americans seeking to annex Oregon, California, Northern Mexico and, interestingly enough, Cuba. Successful students will use the provided map of the territories to obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the US Territorial Acquisitions during that time.
