History in Dispute: Charlottesville and Confederate Monuments | Teaching with the News ... - 9 views

    Hi Mary,
    Thank you for this amazing share. Down here in Australia there has been a similar event regarding monuments in the news, just after the Charlottesville monument events unfolded. We can definately incorporate and contextualise this for Australia as a combined or global event.

    A link to an Australian news article that could also be utilised to expand young American minds in understanding that this is a global issue also.

    Dear Faye,

    Thank you for your comment and the link you posted. It will be interesting to look at this as a global issue. Recently I also saw some articles about similar events in Canada.

    Hope you have a good school year!
    Mary

The Robert Prager Lynching - 1 views

  •  
    Excerpts of newspaper articles describing the April 1918 lynching of a 45 year old Illinois coal miner. These articles can be used in a DBQ or as a launching point for student research into the incident itself. What can we find out about Robert Prager? How can we be certain? What does his death tell us about American public opinion in World War I - and how do we know that?

Setting students into these for "real" research may find even more.
