What are ways to incorporate histories of racial exclusion in housing into the 11th grade History classroom? This powerpoint gives a brief overview of two units designed for 11th grade U.S. History on the topic of Racial Exclusion & Housing Policy. The first unit is on World War II housing policy and civil rights, and contextualizes housing policies in the 1940s as catalysts of civil unrest in the U.S. The second unit is on identity and housing and uses storytelling to explore issues in housing such as gentrification.
