- Description: Meeting of the Minds: Global Voices in US History
- The “meeting of the minds” approach has students role play a historical figure. In these versions I have included international characters as part of the role play scenario. This broadens students’ understanding of an “American” event or time period and complicates the traditional narrative by adding perspectives from around the globe.
