WEBINAR: American Lesson Plan: Mapping the Landscape of Secondary US History Education

March 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

American Historical Association
“What are schoolchildren being taught about our nation’s history?!” Among education reformers and activists, the question raises alarm, often grounded in broad assumptions about the possibility for politics to shape what happens in the classroom. About two years ago, the American Historical Association decided to take the question more literally. In the multistage Mapping the Landscape of Secondary US History Education project, an AHA research team set out to describe the contours of a vast and varied terrain—an empirical grounding for ongoing debates and deliberations about the teaching of the American past. After a year and a half of interviewing social studies administrators, surveying US history teachers, coding state legislation, and appraising district-level curricula, the team has some answers. In this session, the Mapping research team (historians Nick Kryczka, Whit Barringer, and Scot McFarlane) share their research from the field—and engage webinar participants in a discussion of how history’s civic function in K-12 education is faring in a polarized moment. Chaired by Katharina Matro (Walter Johnson High School). This online event is part of AHA Learn, a series focused on teaching and learning in history. It is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Can’t make it? Register anyway and receive a link to the recording after the event.
