    Charlottesville and Confederate Monuments
    History in Dispute  
    Teaching with the News - The Choices Program Brown University

    Remind students that conversations about events in Charlottesville and commemorations of the Confederacy will likely raise issues related to racism and power, which can be emotional. As you discuss these issues with your class, remind students that it is important to be respectful of the experiences of others, to think before they speak, and to be prepared to support their statements with facts.

    • Understand the idea of historical memory.
    • Contextualize recent events in Charlottesville within a larger historical controversy.
    • Apply the concept of historical memory to the controversy over Confederate monuments.
    • Appraise media sources that express a range of views on Confederate monuments.
    This lesson begins with an examination of the concept of "Historical Memory" and what points of view are remembered. Students examine many types of primary sources to determine their perspective and how to interpret them.
