This course will enhance educators' content knowledge in American History though the study of New York's seminal role in the American Revolution, Civil War, and World War II. Learn how the nation's most imporant port struggled to define it's identity under British occupation during the Revolution; how pro-Southern sentiments collided with fervent Union support; how the exclusion of women and African Americans from wartime jobs fueled the demand for rqual rights; and much more. During gallery tours and library visits, participants will interact with original primary sources from the New-York Historical Society's vast collections. Ongoing individual and small group work will culminate in the presentation of a multi-lesson unity inspired by the course's key themes. Participants will leave this course with increased knowledge of history, a personal library of new resources, and a toolkit of inquiry-based strategies that can be implemented in the classroom.
