This selection of resources from Facing History and Ourselves is designed to complete the extensive materials available for educators on Ancestry®, with a focus on four thematic areas:
These lessons, educational videos, and other classroom resources offer important historical context for students who are using archival material from Ancestry. Intended for students ready for deeper discussions of complex issues, Facing History's resources emphasize that history is a human story. Together, the Facing History materials and the Ancestry archival collection invite students to bring both their minds and hearts to the study of history, and to make connections between the past and present.
Each thematic area also includes a selection of professional learning opportunities for educators, from recorded webinars to classroom videos featuring master teachers. These resources help educators to build background knowledge, gain new strategies and craft more effective engaging instruction.
