Bringing All Voices to the U.S. History Classroom: An Introduction to the Choices Program’s U.S. History Series
New Brunswick NJ
How can you bring African-American, Native, and Latinx voices and perspectives into the “story” of U.S. history? Join us as we examine the lesson plans, student readings, and videos found in the Choices Program’s U.S. History Series. We’ll explore two units in detail—Westward Expansion: A New History and The Civil War and the Meaning of Liberty—as well as lessons from selected other units.
Our workshops are completely interactive, so be ready to be engaged and inspired!
NOTE: This workshop will begin at 8:30 am ET. It will take place at the Rutgers University Inn and Conference Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
Registration fee: $145. All participants will receive a print copy of the Westward Expansion unit and the Civil War unit, as well as a one-year Digital Editions license for both units. Coffee, lunch, and a certificate of completion will also be provided.
