Lessons & Mini-Lessons

Feel prepared to discuss challenging current events or to explore pivotal periods in history with your students.

Our lessons are written using Facing History’s unique pedagogical approach, with activities that balance personal reflection and collaboration and draw upon primary source material selected to activate students’ intellectual, emotional, and ethical engagement.

I love the way I can show my students how events in the past still impact our lives today. Because of what you do, I can make history a living breathing thing in my classroom!
