Description : For the past three decades, many history professors have allowed their biases to distort the way America’s past is taught. These intellectuals have searched for instances of racism, sexism, and bigotry in our history while downplaying the greatness of America’s patriots and the achievements of “dead white men.” As a result, more emphasis is placed on Harriet Tubman than on George Washington; more about the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II than about D-Day or Iwo Jima; more on the dangers we faced from Joseph McCarthy than those we faced from Josef Stalin. A Patriot’s History of the United States corrects those doctrinaire biases. In this groundbreaking book, America’s discovery, founding, and development are reexamined with an appreciation for the elements of public virtue, personal liberty, and private property that make this nation uniquely successful. This book offers a long-overdue acknowledgment of America’s true and proud history.

Description : “In the age of Twitter and reductive history, we need a complex, fully realized, radical reassessment of history—and A Queer History of the United States is exactly that. Along the way, there are enough revelations and reassessments to fuel dozens of arguments about how we got to where we are today. I don't know when I have enjoyed a history so much.” —Dorothy Allison, author of Bastard Out of Carolina

Description : This lesson guide is designed to help U.S. history teachers and students in grades 8-11 examine historic events through basic economic reasoning. It lends itself to instruction grounded in inquiry learning, direct instruction, and cooperative learning. It calls for students to be engaged in case studies, simulation exercises, and group work, as well as lectures, class discussion, reading, and writing. This volume (1 of 2) includes eight units, each of which presents a unit overview, two to seven lessons (26 altogether), and sample test items. Each lesson includes an introduction that summarizes the historical facts and economic principles to be used in the lesson, a concept list, instructional objectives, an estimate of the time required for instruction, and a list of instructional materials, including visuals for transparencies, and student activities. Each lesson contains detailed teaching procedures, which typically begin with a statement of purpose and include discussion questions, activities, anticipated responses, and answers to questions posed in the activities. Each lesson culminates with a closure activity that reviews learning, provides a lesson summary, or invites additional applications. The program is designed for supplemental use with a secondary U.S. history textbook and is intended to integrate the study of history and economics. The program is not intended for use as a self-contained history course; it focuses only on the economic dimensions of U.S. history. (Author/BB)
