Moderator: Victoria Cain, Northeastern University

Location: Fay House, Radcliffe Institute

All high school students in the United States study American history, and many of them seek mastery in the subject, which is the second most popular at the Advanced Placement level. Yet relatively few female actors appear in high school textbooks, and graduates arrive on college campuses with widely varying levels of exposure to the history of women, gender, and sexuality in America, especially prior to the 1990s. This panel discussion, featuring university faculty, secondary educators, and activist curriculum specialists, aims to seed an ongoing discussion between high school and post-secondary instructors of American history about gendering the U.S. History curriculum. What topics in women’s and gender history and in the history of sexuality get covered when, where, and how? How can college- and university-based scholars do more to connect their work with high school classrooms? How are secondary educators—and their students—advancing and reshaping the field?

This program is also open to all K-12 educators. Teachers can earn 10 PDPs with the completion of a lesson plan.

This is a program in the History of Women, Gender, & Sexuality seminar series, a collaboration of the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America and the Massachusetts Historical Society. RSVP required: email [email protected]
