Session Abstract

As our student populations continue to diversify it is becoming clearer that we need to teach a U.S. History survey course that reflects our nation’s changing demography and rethinks the way we tell the national narrative.  This panel of experienced teachers (both high school and higher-ed) and authors (including authors from the two global U.S. History textbooks, American Horizons and Global Americans),  offers some hard-learned perspectives and practical, hands-on suggestions on how to incorporate diverse and global perspectives into the standard United States History Course.
