Students consider the perspectives of various stakeholders—colonists, enslaved Africans, and Native peoples—and explore the factors that led to rebellion, war, and the independence of the U.S.
Choices is launching a new project that re-envisions our U.S. History Series. We will be adding new resources that provide additional breadth, depth, and rigor as well as new innovative lessons. We will be working with U.S. history scholars to write a number of new curriculum units that build on our current work. In the process, some of our titles have been retired.
In this work we aim to:
- Provide teachers with a cohesive package of curriculum units that will closely align with their U.S. history course scope and sequence and tell a responsible and thorough history of the United States.
- Enable students to step into the past to experience moments in history as people lived them at the time.
- Equip students to draw on current historiography to think critically about significant themes in U.S. history.
- Encourage students to challenge and grapple with this history as historians and as active members of a democratic society.
Our first two new titles, A New Nation and The Civil War, will be available for the 2018-19 school year.
