How does society rebuild after extraordinary division and trauma, when the ideals and values of the democracy are most vulnerable? This two day workshop explores the Reconstruction era in the United States and the construction of American identity. Special to the March 4-5 workshop is an opportunity for a sneak preview of the upcoming exhibit, The Civil War and the West, opening April 25 at the Autry.
In this workshop you will:
* Discover new teaching strategies, classroom activities, and multimedia resources to use in your classroom that align with the Common Core State Standards
* Explore themes such as historical memory, justice, and civic participation in a democracy
* Receive a free copy of The Reconstruction Era and the Fragility of Democracy?
Recommended for 6-12th grade U.S. history, world history, or humanities teachers.
