Teaching the Truth About Colonialism
Featuring: Dr. Sarah Shear & Tamar LaSure-Owens

Traditional narratives of colonial America have often left out the voices and stories of enslaved Africans, Indigenous people and indentured servants. We’ll discuss simple strategies for including these narratives in your lessons while helping students engage with larger historical forces such as colonialism and land dispossession.
