3rd Grade History Unit: Geography & Cultures of North America
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

The unit is focused on the examination of geography in terms of “place.” Students dive into inquiry to answer the compelling questions, “Where are we?” and “Who are we?” Through these two questions students will understand where they live and where people around the world live. Students will also dive into the term “culture” and define it through many characteristics. Students will examine and reflect upon their own culture and research different cultures of North America.

America Through Media
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

Historians learn about the past in many ways. Political and legal documents, economic statistics, film and video footage of events, material items such as tools and clothing, literature, songs, movies: all of these leftovers from previous eras help historians piece together the different ways that societies change over time. This interactive textbook is designed to help students understand America in the twentieth century through examination of the media produced in that era. Such explorations into the past are called cultural history, which has been defined by the Yale University Department of History as “an effort to inhabit the minds of the people of different worlds.”

The American Revolution

Rating
0.0 stars

The American Revolution entailed some remarkable transformations -- converting British colonists into American revolutionaries, and a cluster of colonies into a confederation of states with a common cause -- but it was far more complex and enduring then the fighting of a war. As John Adams put it, "The Revolution was in the Minds of the people . . . before a drop of blood was drawn at Lexington" -- and it continued long past America's victory at Yorktown. This course will examine the Revolution from this broad perspective, tracing the participants' shifting sense of themselves as British subjects, colonial settlers, revolutionaries, and Americans.

Anti-Bias Classroom Photographs Collection
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This collection was inspired by Ellen Wolpert's article about anti-bias work with younger students. Her article suggests that teachers should keep a collection of non-stereotypical photos of people doing regular things that can be referenced to stimulate class discussion or address biased language with young children.

The photos in this growing collection are organized into (Google Drive) folders inspired by categories mentioned by Ms. Wolpert: Race, Age, Physical Abilities, Gender Roles, Families/Sexual Orientation, Jobs, and Ethnicity. Each folder contains different photographs curated from various Creative Commons websites, including Unsplash, Pixabay, and Pexels. Currently there are 80 photographs in the collection. They have been assembled here for your convenience and represent many hours of searching, downloading, and editing.
