Resources to Empower Students with Hard History

The history of slavery is a painful and significant chapter in United States history that has shaped the nation’s identity. As we strive for a more just and equitable future, it is crucial to teach this history in schools. By educating our students about the realities of slavery and the experiences of enslaved people, we empower them with the knowledge and empathy necessary to understand the complex social dynamics that have shaped our world, while fostering empathy and critical thinking skills. 

Discussions about slavery can be uncomfortable and challenging, but with the right resources you can have a guideline for facilitating these difficult conversations in the classroom. Check out the following hard history resources from Teaching Channel continuing education course 5608: Teaching and Learning about the History of Slavery in the U.S. to empower your students’ discussion.

Teaching our children, and ourselves, about the past is a crucial step in healing the nation and working toward justice. That’s why Teaching Channel offers graduate-level continuing education courses that go beyond learning about historical facts and events. Course 5608: Teaching and Learning about the History of Slavery in the U.S. delves into the “revolts, rebellions, and rebels,” who fought for abolition, and grapples with how the history of slavery contributes to systemic inequalities in present-day America.
