Co-Presenter Name(s):

Area of the World from Which You Will Present: Arlington, VA - USA

Language in Which You Will Present: English

Target Audience(s): Social Studies/History Teachers and Curriculum Specialists

Short Session Description (one line):  This session details 4 HOW TO’s of globalizing US  (or any national) history.  



Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

Globalizing US History involves different content, provokes different questions, and yields different causes and consequences regarding explanations about the past. The major challenge to using a global perspective with students comes from the tradition of the discipline.  Since the 1800s historians, and history textbooks, have used “the nation” as the entry point and analytical unit for  historical narratives.  Ultimately, teachers must decide how they will contextualize the nation as a tool for historical investigation.

 

As a starting point, globalizing US history works well when teachers A) use a contemporary connection, and B) are explicit and intentional with students. But beyond that hook, or bell ringer rationale, what are some distinct HOW’s to globalizing US History. This session details 4 HOW TO’s of globalizing US  (or any national) history.  

  1. Comparative Approach
  2. Transnational Approach
  3.  Non-US Perspective about “US” Events
  4. Thematic/Topical Approach

.

The session will explain these approaches and provide resources for teachers to use with their students.
