Students explore the historical connections between the United States’ creation of a settler colonial empire in North America (what is often called “westward expansion”) and the nation’s acquisition of an overseas colonial empire following the War of 1898.
Exploring Choices’ Imperial America Unit
Join us as we explore the newest addition to our U.S. History Series that examines U.S. imperial expansion at the turn of the 20th century. We’ll explore selected themes, readings, and lessons found in the unit and discuss ways to implement them in your classroom.
Daniel Rodriguez, Associate Professor of History at Brown University, will provide a presentation and lead a discussion on U.S. Imperialism at the Turn of the 20th Century: The View from Latin America.
“Thank you so much for a fantastic day. I love great PD and you definitely provided it. I am already altering my lesson plans to include the Choices Program.” – Kory, Workshop Participant, New Jersey

Any U.S. history teacher who covers this period of history will find this session useful for exploring this innovative unit and discussing ways to implement it in the classroom. Since this unit includes lessons on Native Hawaiian resistance to U.S. annexation, Black soldiers in the Philippine-American War, and Puerto Rico’s political status, ethnic studies educators may also find this session useful.
