Two new units of Women & the American Story are ready for launch! Join us to celebrate the debut of Building a New Nation, 1776-1832 and Industry and Empire, 1866-1904 and all the exciting new women’s history resources ready for your classroom. Following opening remarks by Vice President for Education Leslie Hayes, participants will have the opportunity to explore the new units in back-to-back workshops led by the curriculum writers:

  • Building a New Nation, 1776-1832 examines the ways women contributed to the foundation of the United States of America. In this workshop participants will get an introduction to the three sections of the unit and do an activity that examines the early debate over women’s capacity for political engagement.
  • Industry and Empire, 1866-1904 explores women’s experiences during a time of growing inequality influenced by industrialization and imperialism. In this workshop participants will receive an overview of the three unit sections and do an activity that explores the impact of American expansion on indigenous and immigrant women.

Participants will receive 3.5 CTLE hours
