Conference Session

The Vietnam War in the U.S. and World History Classroom

VASS Conference Session

Join the Choices Program at the Vermont Alliance for the Social Studies annual conference! Explore the student readings, lessons, and videos in our newest curriculum unit, The Vietnam War: Origins, History, and Legacies. The session will highlight primary source quotes and lessons that prioritize the voices of women, Black, Latino, and Indigenous soldiers and resisters. We’ll also examine a lesson on the experiences of Vietnamese refugees. The session will end with a discussion on how a “long history” approach can support students’ understanding of concepts such as historical memory and historiography.

The time and exact location of this session will be announced at a later date.
