Then & Now: The Relevance of History in Current Events, are a series of Google Classrooms designed to create historical context for the stories we see in our social media feeds and on the news. Using primary sources, articles, and videos each classroom traces how past events have influenced our contemporary world, and while empowers students to harness that knowledge to shape the future. Topics include Identity and the US Census, The Black Experience, Protest, Suffrage, and Immigration.
Each free classroom includes educator guides and informational videos created by Museum educators.
Activities are organized in a Google Classroom, but users can watch or interact how they’d like with the source.
