Introductory Webinar

The Vietnam War in U.S. and World History Classrooms

7:00 pm — 8:15 pm

Join the Choices Program and your colleagues from Long Island as we explore the student readings, lessons, and videos in our 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 resistors. We’ll also examine a lesson on the experiences of Vietnamese refugees. We’ll end with a discussion on how a “long history” approach can support students’ understanding of historical memory and historiography. 

Co-sponsored by The Long Island Council for the Social Studies
