Lessons Learned from the AHA's Bridging Cultures Program, Part 5: PechaKucha 2, Incorporating the Atlantic and Pacific Worlds into the U.S. History Survey Course
Six Community College participants from the three-year AHA/NEH Bridging Cultures program will present six PechaKucha demonstrations to explain the overall theme of incorporating the Atlantic and Pacific worlds in the U.S. History survey course. Participants will also share the archival materials they researched as part of Bridging Cultures spending a week at the Huntington Library in Pasadena, California, and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. The PechaKucha topics will be: Conceptualizing U.S. History within the Wider Context of the Pacific, the Process of Integrating Pacific and Atlantic Histories into the U.S. History Survey, Using Maps to Bring the Atlantic and Pacific Worlds into the U.S. History Survey Course, the Migration Patterns of Asians into the Americas, Online Activities to Explain Migration and Trade in the Atlantic World, and European and Native American Encounters. A discussion of best practices to better incorporate Atlantic and Pacific World histories into the U.S. History survey course will follow the presentations.
