  • Make each bullet appear by itself - animations!
  • Thu Nguyen: What do we do at the beginning of the year: Set up expectations, talk about our own identities to figure out where we fit in the world. Study the geography of the world. Learn about the world’s issues.
    What we hope to learn by the end of the year: Which issues are most important to each of us, and how can we make an impact on the world’s issues?
  • Get into groups of 3-4
    Give 10 mins to discuss
    Go around chart paper and room and add any specific texts and topics that you have to teach
  • I have always loved teaching American history the most. Probably because I have always loved my family’s stories and those ARE American histories. I have always been taught and believed that American history is my history and I like to insert myself where I know my story fits in. I like to center myself to destigmatize those moments when people are looking at you because they know this has something to do with you. I like to center myself to show that we will not be talking about American history in a way that erases or marginalizes people of color. We built this country and there is no American story without every single one of our narratives

People of Color built this country and there is no American story without every single one of our narratives. I WANT students to look at and see my face when they hear the term American history. And I want them to visualize their own faces and those of their classmates too.
