    Tammy,

    I agree! The blank template would be great for high school level civics/current events classes, and the other is perfect for middle school. Plus, the two assessment options are great starting points.

Curriculum Matters: U.S. History Textbooks' Omissions - 0 views

  • So what's a history teacher to do?

    Romanowski urges teachers to support students in critiquing their textbooks and exploring perspectives beyond that of the texts. Teachers can ask their students, for example, to answer this question: "Whose viewpoint is presented, whose omitted, and whose interests are served?" Teachers can have them explore reactions of various Americans to a historical event, such as the attacks of 9/11, including that of the U.S. president, a member of Congress, a relative of a victim, and an Arab-American. Lastly, Romanowski recommends, teachers can use writing assignments to develop students' critical thinking.

    What do our textbooks omit? A sort of homage to James Loewen's "Lies My Teacher Told Me."

    George Mason University's project for the teaching of American History. Some wonderful resources and live conversations with historians, I think.
