Discover How Children Shaped Society Throughout History

Children & Youth in History is designed to help teachers and students learn about the important roles of young people throughout history by providing access to information about the lived experiences of children and youth from multiple perspectives as well as changing notions about childhood and adolescence in past cultures and civilizations. The materials address such questions as: What was it like to be a child or adolescent throughout history? How is childhood defined? How has it changed, and how has it remained the same? What factors have shaped childhood, and how did children shape history, society and culture?Children & Youth in History has four key features: a Primary Source Database with 350 resources, along with guidance on how to use those sources critically, and tools for annotating and organizing the sources; 60 Website Reviews that focus on valuable online resources for studying and teaching the history of childhood and youth in world history; 11 Teaching Modules that provide historical context, teaching tools and strategies for teaching with sets of primary sources drawn from the Primary Source Database; and 25Teaching Case Studies, created by experienced scholars and teachers, which model strategies for using primary sources to teach the history of childhood and youth. The Students’ Guide to Reading Primary Sources on the History of Children & Youth will help students to get started using the resources.
