Women in American History

Course Description:

What role did women play in key events in American history? What were women’s lives like before the arrival of European settlers, during the colonial period, during the 19th century? While women’s history has been a subject of serious study since the 1970s, the story of women in American history remains neglected in many middle and high school classes. In this course, you will enhance your knowledge of women’s roles throughout American history and explore how primary sources reveal and conceal women’s history using multimedia resources from Annenberg Learner. At the end of the course, learners earn a Certificate of Completion.

Note: This is a self-paced course accessible for one year after enrollment, and not eligible for graduate credit.
