We and They

In the second step of the Facing History Scope and Sequence, students examine the ways that humans so often create “in” groups and “out” groups and the consequences of creating those groups. Who are “we”? Who are “they”? The answers to these questions can have profound consequences, because they define who belongs and who does not.  

The resources on this page examine this behavior and explore how and why important ideas about human similarities and differences—such as race, religion, and nation—have greatly influenced the way many societies have defined their membership in the past several centuries.
