Imperial America (1890-1914)

3:00 pm — 4:00 pm
Webinar Series - 4 of 4
DETAILS

How and why did the United States embark on a process of global imperial expansion?

Choices’ new curriculum unit, Imperial America: U.S. Global Expansion, will be unveiled in this session. What’s included in the unit?  A lesson on Native Hawaiian resistance, a political cartoons activity, an analysis of John Gast’s “American Progress” painting, and a lesson on various soldiers’ experiences and viewpoints in the Philippine-American War, as expressed in historical letters, diaries, and memoirs. And much more! Join us.

This webinar is the fourth in a four-part series on The Choices Program’s U.S. History Series: Bringing All Voices into the Story. What makes the Choices Program’s U.S. History series different from many curricular offerings in the marketplace? One way that Choices curriculum units stand out is our commitment to telling a responsible and inclusive history of the United States. Join us for this four-part exploration of practical examples of how our curriculum brings multiple voices into the telling of history, while still providing the coverage of key turning points that are required in most standards.

NOTE: This webinar will begin at 3 pm EDT.
