Framework for Teaching the Historical Significance of Slavery in America
Teaching Tolerance has developed Teaching Hard History, a comprehensive guide for teaching and learning at all grade levels about the role slavery played in the development of the United States and how its legacies still influence us today. To provide students with a truthful, age-appropriate account of America’s past, Teaching Tolerance’s resources for elementary educators include a first-of-its-kind framework for K–5, along with student texts and teaching tools, and professional development for anyone committed to teaching this hard history with young students. Resources for middle school and high school educators include a 6–12framework, as well as student-facing videos and primary source texts. High school educators will also find teaching tools and professional development resources.
Developed by Boston Children’s Museum, the League of Extraordinary Bloggers is part of The Freeman Foundation Asian Culture Exhibit Series, administered by the Association of Children’s Museums. In the game, a criminal mastermind known as the FOX has been stealing important cultural landmarks and objects all across China, Japan, South Korea, and Vietnam. Working together, students will learn about Asia and assemble clues from each country to track down this criminal mastermind.
Each November educators across the country teach their students about the First Thanksgiving, a quintessentially American holiday. The Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian has designed a poster to encourage teaching about Thanksgiving in a new way—one that recognizes the country’s original people.
