This three-year program is designed to improve student achievement in the Corning-Painted Post School District by preparing faculty to teach traditional American history. This unit, Freedom and Rights: Expanding Freedom, will focus attention on the aftermath of the Civil War and the struggle to rebuild a national identity following a destructive period of war and social conflict. Topics will include equal protection of the law, the Freedmen's Bureau, Jim Crow laws, Native American allotment, and assimilation of Native Americans and immigrants during the Plains Conflict and the Homestead Era.
