American Revolution

The American Revolution marked the point in history when the colonist finally felt it was time to demolish the current government in the colonies since their existence was to only make money for England and they knew that there was more to them then that.

American Response to the Holocaust in the Media

With America's memory of the holocaust slowly fading away, now it is more important than ever to spread information about the holocaust. In the words of George Santayana "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." We must continue to teach the next generations of Americans about this horrific event so that nothing of its kind will ever happen again. This collection is centered around America's response to the holocaust. It has a focus around media and public opinion. Within this curated exhibit are photos and artifacts pertaining to this topic.

American Life in the 1960s Megan Rapp

This small collection of artifacts is meant to represent the decade of the 1960s in America. Through this collection, key points and events of the decade are highlighted, along with the social aspects of the 60s. Through this collection, you will be able to see the main ideas and themes of the 1960s in America. The 1960s were a tumultuous time for many Americans as The U.S was involved in both the Vietnam War and the Cold War, the feminist movement gained momentum, African Americans began standing up for themselves and their rights causing the Civil Rights Movement, the sexual revolution took place, and there was much poverty throughout the country.

American Inventions Before and During the Industrial Revolution

This collection contains images and information regarding inventions that were created in America during the time period from 1752 to 1837 and have provided some form of growth and impact on the country. The first American Industrial Revolution began in 1790 and lasted until 1870, and was a big transition from goods being made by hand to the creation of machines that could produce goods on a grander scale. Not only were goods being produced more efficiently, but new technology also improved communication and transportation of these goods/ideas as well. The inventions shown below (in chronological order), had a major impact on the newly formed America at the time, and they have also been a foundation for many inventions that have come later on in history, as well as in modern-day America. It is also interesting because not only were these inventions revolutionary by themselves, but some of them were even dependent on one-another in some shape or form, and they all play a key role in the development of Industrial America.

American Indians

Paintings and photographs that represent the Lakota, Inuit, Kwakiutl, Pueblo, and Iroquois tribes. This aligns with Virginia SOL USI.3b. Teachers may have students look critically at each image. Students can then create a claim or hypothesis of what tribe they think it represents, along with supporting details. Teachers should use the "what makes you say that" strategy (described on the first image). This is a great check for understanding or formative assessment of student learning.
