Students explore the transformation of North America in the nineteenth century and probe this complicated and violent history, considering the major events and policies that accompanied U.S. territorial growth and the effects at a local level.
What is Settler Colonialism and Why Should I Teach About It?
We’ll explore two Choices curriculum units, Westward Expansion: A New History, and Imperial America: U.S. Global Expansion, 1890-1915, to see how both units use the term “settler colonialism.” We will discuss why this shift in historiography is important. We’ll also discuss new ways that historians are working with Indigenous sources.
Be sure to stop by our virtual exhibit booth to review all of our curriculum units! We’d love to see you there and answer any questions you may have about our materials.
