Uncovering an Alternative Historical Narrative
A SUMMER LEARNING PROGRAM
The University of Wisconsin-Parkside has been awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Education to offer local high school students and teachers an opportunity to earn FREE COLLEGE CREDITS by studying diverse cultural contributions to U.S. History. This program will be offered every July in 2019, 2021, and 2022.
The courses will explore the historical narratives of groups that have experienced and participated in the making of history, but whose narratives have been mediated, appropriated, or erased. Each year of the program will focus on an alternative narrative of groups that have experienced history, and in that experience, have participated in the making of history. The first year of the program will focus on the Native American Narrative, the second on the Hispanic American Narrative, and the third and final year on the African American Narrative.
