In the first step of the Facing History Scope and Sequence, students explore the relationship between the individual and society, and how that relationship affects the choices we make. Who am I? Who are you? Who are we? How we answer these questions shapes how we think about, and how we behave toward, ourselves and others. And our answers to those questions are influenced by the society we live in.
The resources on this page explore some of the dilemmas people face as they establish themselves both as individuals and as members of a group, and as they define themselves and are defined by others. They will help guide your students through the first step of the Facing History journey and introduce ideas about human behavior and decision making that will serve as a foundation for examining the historical case study later.
