Publisher Description

American and World History units (in chronological order) include: The American Revolution by Scott Deal, The Pig War by Andy Saxton, Cesspool of Savagery by Michelle Murphy, Chemical War by Erik Nelson, Americans’ Perceptions of Immigration in the 1920s by Ceci Brunning and Jenna Bunnell, The New Deal and the Art of Public Persuasion by Kari VanKommer, Combat Soldiers in Context by Kristi Anne McKenzie, The Marshall Plan: Altruism or Pragmatism? by Sam Kimerling, Little Rock Nine: Evaluating Historical Sources by Christy Thomas, First Ladies as a Political Tool by Emily Strocher


Ten engaging questions and historic documents empower students to be the historian in the classroom. The units draw from a fascinating collection of text and multimedia content - documents, posters, photographs, audio, video, letter and other ephemera. "Stop-and-think" prompts based on CCSS skills guide students through analysis of the primary and secondary sources. Essential questions foster critical thinking. All documents include links back to the original source material so readers can remix the content into their own curated collections


Designed by 2014 graduate and undergraduate history education students at the University of Portland under the direction of nationally recognized history educator - Peter Pappas. It's a great resource for use in the classroom, and it serves as a model for teacher or student curation of historic content into interactive digital DBQs.
