This unit tells the “long history” of the destructive, deadly, and divisive U.S. war in Vietnam. Students examine the war’s long-term origins, investigate its complex history, and explore its lasting legacies.
The Vietnam War in U.S. and World History Classrooms
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
