This unit provides a wide-ranging overview of racial slavery in the Americas and the opportunity for students to consider how the past shapes the present.
Meeting Students’ Requests for African American History Curriculum
Are your current students and recent graduates asking you to diversify the high school history curriculum to include more Black history? Is your district looking to incorporate more African American history into your existing curriculum?
Join the Choices Program and a panel of social studies curriculum leaders to:
HEAR an overview of our U.S. History curriculum titles that can meet this request, including Racial Slavery in the Americas: Resistance, Freedom, and Legacies; The Civil War and the Meaning of Liberty; and Freedom Now: The Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi;
SAMPLE selected lessons from the curriculum units;
LEARN from other educators and curriculum directors about what has worked for them;
EXPLORE professional development support for your staff.
Panel presenters include Kristy Stofy, public school social studies curriculum supervisor (Wayne, New Jersey), and Qiana Johnson, middle school teacher at the Academy at Kiley Middle School (Springfield, Massachusetts).
This is a free webinar.
A free Digital Editions trial license will be provided to curriculum directors who attend.
While all are welcome, this webinar is most appropriate for curriculum directors considering the adoption of the Choices Program U.S. History Series.
