How do primary sources strengthen understanding of the roles and experiences of racial and ethnic groups in U.S. history?
First edition. August 2022.
This collection of twelve lessons adapted from the Choices Program’s U.S. History Series provides teachers with stand-alone activities that can be used in an ethnic studies course. The lessons are arranged chronologically and can help students explore groups that played vital roles, but that are sometimes underrepresented, in U.S. history. The lessons can be used to help broaden students’ perspectives of historical and contemporary experiences of ethnic and racial groups in the United States. Each lesson contains sources presented from the perspectives of different ethnic and racial groups.
The lessons are provided as a guide and vary in length and difficulty. Each lesson can be completed in one or more periods and most include videos that feature leading experts. Choices Program encourages teachers to adapt them to the needs of their students.
