Virtual Session

What is Settler Colonialism and Why Should I Teach About It?

5:45 pm — 6:45 pm
NCHE Virtual Booth Session

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.

Note: This session will begin at 5:45 pm ET.
