Children and Youth

Facilitating learning about the important roles of young people throughout history is the objective of Children and Youth in History.

Children and Youth 1

Children and Youth in History helps teachers and students by providing access to information about the experiences of children and youth from multiple perspectives as well as changing notions about childhood and adolescence in past cultures and civilizations.

The free website addresses questions such as: What was it like to be a youth throughout history? How has childhood changed and how has it remained the same? What factors have shaped childhood? How did children shape history, society, and culture?

Key features:

  • A Primary Source Database with guidance on how to use those sources critically and tools for annotating and organizing the sources
  • Website Reviews that focus on online resources for studying and teaching the history of childhood and youth in world history
  • Eleven Teaching Modules that provide historical context, teaching tools, and strategies for teaching with sets of primary sources
  • Teaching Case Studies that model strategies for using primary sources to teach the history of childhood and youth

Children and Youth 2

The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University and the University of Missouri–Kansas City received funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to create Children and Youth in History.
