History Through Overlooked Narratives: Women
The first step in creating an inclusive classroom is ensuring that we teach inclusive topics. The Education Department at the New-York Historical Society strives to provide teachers with resources that give voice to individuals that are often overlooked in the historic narrative: those who are not male, white, and upper class. In this two part series, participants will explore the experience of immigrants and women in American history and consider how to effectively weave their perspectives into the Social Studies classroom. Part II will focus on the role women played in redefining what it means to be an American citizen. Participants will tour the exhibition Hotbed and learn about women activists of the early 20th century. Through primary source document analysis, we will unpack the challenge of studying women and the ways in which we can help students appreciate that to study women’s history is study a rich, diverse, a complicated group of important and influential individuals.
