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.
Teaching Hard History’s Framework for Teaching American Slavery and the Choices Program’s U.S. History Series
Our colleagues at Teaching Hard History recently reviewed six Choices Program U.S. History curriculum units to document how these units address the Key Concepts and Summary Objectives outlined in the Framework. They reviewed the following units: Racial Slavery in the Americas: Resistance, Freedom, and Legacies; The American Revolution: Experiences of Rebellion; We the People: A New Nation; The Civil War and the Meaning of Liberty; Westward Expansion: A New History.
Join us to learn more about how these Choices units fit into the five eras of history described by the Framework, and strategies for using the Framework in tandem with the Choices unit to present a comprehensive history of American slavery to your students.
This webinar is the second of a four-part series on The Choices Program’s U.S. History Series: Bringing All Voices into the Story. Attend one or all of the remaining sessions! 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.
This is a free webinar.
