Students explore the transformation of North America in the nineteenth century and probe this complicated and violent history, considering the major events and policies that accompanied U.S. territorial growth and the effects at a local level.
Bringing All Voices to the U.S. History Classroom: An Introduction to the Choices Program’s U.S. History Series
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 Programs 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 PT. It will take place at the Puget Sound Educational Service District (PSESD) office at 800 Oakesdale Ave. SW, Renton, WA.
