This is a diverse collection of resources for teachers working to include the voices of more Black people, indigenous people, persons of color, and women in their United States History classroom. The bundle includes worksheets, projects, and stations activities to engage your students in various aspects of U.S. History from 1600-1980s.

This bundle is for teachers looking to:

  • diversify the primary sources used in their classroom
  • teach U.S. History with the voices of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian peoples
  • address challenging topics like racism, nativism/xenophobia, and sexism
  • teach about slavery, disenfranchisement, pacifism, labor unions, and anti-immigrant sentiment in U.S. history

Topics covered:

  • Race-based slavery in the United States
  • The Abolitionist Movement
  • Opposition to the Mexican American War and the expansion of slavery
  • Massacres of indigenous people during the Battle of Little Bighorn and Wounded Knee
  • Forced cultural assimilation of indigenous people
  • Anti-Chinese racism, economic discrimination, and violence in the US West
  • Imperialism during the Spanish American War
  • Anti-World War I
  • The Women's Suffrage Movement
  • Jim Crow Segregation
  • Labor Unions and the rights of workers
  • African Americans in World War I
  • Xenophobia and Nativism
  • The Chicano Movement (including the UFW & Delano Grape Boycott)
  • Latinx Civil Rights Movement
  • Opposition to the Vietnam War
  • Japanese-American Internment during WWII
  • The Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima
  • First and Second Wave Feminism
  • Stonewall Uprising & the LBGTQIA+ Movement

Some of the primary sources included are the works of:

  • Frederick Douglass
  • Harriet Jacobs
  • Tecumseh
  • Sitting Bull
  • Sojourner Truth
  • The Grimke' Sisters
  • Zora Neale Hurston
  • Cesar Chavez
  • Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Gloria Steinem
  • Shirley Chisholm
  • Yamaoka Michiko, a survivor of the Hiroshima bombing
  • Helen Keller

Over time, I created these resources to use in my American History courses with 9th, 10th, and 11th graders. I developed these as I learned about anti-racist living & teaching practices and attempted to decenter whiteness in my U.S. History classroom. I hope these resources will be a strong starting point for you & your students!
