Westward Expansion: A New History

4:00 pm — 6:00 pm
Online Workshop

The Choices Program is partnering with UNC World View to introduce an important curriculum unit to North Carolina educators. Westward Expansion: A New History explores how different groups in the West experienced U.S. expansion and invasion and includes lessons on geography, Indian primary sources, rewriting history, and more to help students learn about legends, calendar sticks, and Native perspectives on U.S. westward expansion. This unit introduces students to the term “settler colonialism” in addition to the idea of “westward expansion” to emphasize the processes of Native removal and the taking of land by U.S. settlers.

NOTE: This event will begin at 4 pm EST.
