Definition of an open lens

Collection Properties

Summary: This course offers AP history and English teachers teaching material for studying different wars throughout the Western Hemisphere. The collection is organized into three major sub-folders: Caribbean and Latin American independence movements, the U.S. Civil War, and the U.S.-Mexican War. Each sub-folder has two or more modules or pedagogical essays within it covering a variety of topics. The modules begin with the history of Latin American revolutions in the early nineteenth century and continues into the 1890s. History teachers could use this course or individual modules to bring together different moments of crisis, rupture, war, and revolution during the nineteenth century from throughout the Americas. Educators can find suggestions for teaching sections on the early republic, the transformation of the economy and society in antebellum America, territorial expansion and Manifest Destiny, the crisis of the union and civil war, and the development of the West in the late nineteenth century. Literature teachers could use these modules to supplement sections on antebellum and seminal Civil War literary texts such as Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin and late nineteenth-century political novels and writings such as those of José Martí. The themes of these modules include American diversity, American identity, revolution, globalization, demographic changes, economic transformations, culture, war and diplomacy, and slavery and its legacies in the Americas.

This collection contains: Modules by: AnaMaria Seglie, Cory Ledoux, Lorena Gauthereau-Bryson, Melissa Bailar, Robin Sager. Modules translated by: Lorena Gauthereau-Bryson.
