Conference Session

The Vietnam War: Origins, History, and Legacies

CCSS Conference Session

Join Choices at the California Council for the Social Studies conference as we present 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, and Latino soldiers and resisters. 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. 

This session will take place at 1:30 pm PST in Salon IV at the Hyatt Regency.

Visit the California Council for the Social Studies website for a conference description and registration information.
