Product Description
A complete lesson for students on what social history is, and why it is important.

--Lesson begins with a bellringer/opener that introduces them to the idea of their phone as a historical artifact.
--Main activity is a text that excerpts from a keynote address by historian Jill Lepore that asks "Whose History Is It?"
--The text has both comprehension questions and critical thinking questions, chunked by page.
--Text introduces the idea of the history of ordinary people as told through objects.
--Exit ticket/closer includes comprehension questions for assessment as well as an opportunity to connect back to the opener.

I created this for a US History class in 11th grade, but it could be used by any History course before embarking on an example of social history!
