Online Course - Credit or Non-Credit Option

HIST 554 - Problems in 19th Century America

PROBLEMS IN 19TH CENTURY AMERICA (HIST 554) takes a thematic and hands-on approach to analyzing significant issues in nineteenth-century US History.  The course focuses on specific themes in US history in conjunction with content collections on the Library of Congress website.  It offers a content-specific curriculum that situates lesson planning within historical content.  Students undertake online, weekly discussions of major themes of nineteenth-century history and create primary-source history lessons using the Library of Congress digital collections with the help of a Teaching with Primary Sources liaison and a professional historian.

In the course, we will:
 Analyze major trends in 19th century US history through the following themes: Politics and War, Race and Gender, Society and Culture.
 Learn the major historiographical trends in 19th century US history through reading secondary sources by professional historians.
 Strengthen skills and gain strategies for evaluating and analyzing secondary sources.
 Strengthen skills and gain strategies for locating, evaluating, and analyzing primary sources.
 Evaluate and create topic-specific, standards-based, and content-informed lessons that integrate primary sources from the Library of Congress and exemplify effective instructional practices.

WHEN: Jul 05, 2016 - Aug 05, 2016
