Explore key moments across U.S. history at which individual advocacy and broad campaigns for civil rights enabled people with disabilities to move from the far margins of society into full citizenship. Identify points in the typical U.S. History curriculum (such as Antebellum Reforms, early 20th century Immigration, and Post WWII social movements) to infuse elements of this history. Access a wealth of primary sources, free curriculum, and communities of support. Gain practical strategies and tools to make history truly accessible for ALL learners–especially students with disabilities.

Presenters: Rich Cairn, & Alison Noyes
