Biographies of a Nation

Rise & Collapse


Biography and Essential Questions

Biography is used as a lens to present the content of this time period.  Throughout the three years of this program, there will be a focus on individuals—both the famous and not so famous.  What were the conflicts and struggles facing those individuals?  What were the choices they made?  What were the unintended consequences of those decisions, and how did those people represent the “collective history” (narrative) of the period?
