Melissa Quijano M. Ed.
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(525)
Every week we'll analyze a popular internet meme for historical context relating to Imperialism.

Class experience

US Grade 8 - 11
Students wil develop analysis skills.
Students will define imperialism.
Students will trace the history of imperialism in the Americas.
Students will identify historical aggressors 
Students will create a history meme.
Students will analyze political maps and how they change over time.
I taught global history in a public school setting and used memes a lot; kids loved it and I loved it, and I hope to go further with it with this class. It's a great way to combine visual culture in a history class, and a great way to remember key facts that will aid in our analysis of really important events. 
Homework Offered
Students will have a final project in which they will create a meme about imperialism.

I've taken care not to include memes that play on racial stereotypes or use bad language. History of imperialism is full of genocide, torture, and racism , so just keep that in mind.
