A History Teaching Toolbox: Practical classroom strategies | Historical Thinking and Other Unnatural Acts | Reading Like a Historian | Reading, Thinking, and Writing About History | Lies My Teacher Told Me | Lies Across America | Why Won't You Just Tell Us the Answer?
In this follow-up to his landmark bestseller, Lies My Teacher Told Me, James Loewen continues to break silences and change our perspectives on U.S. history. Loewen takes history textbooks to task for their perpetuations of myth and their lack of awareness of todayâs multicultural student audience (not to mention the astonishing number of âfactsâ they just get plain wrong).
âHow did people get here?â âWhy did Europe win?â âWhy did the South secede?â In Teaching What Really Happened, Loewen goes beyond the usual textbook-dominated viewpoints to illuminate a wealth of intriguing, often hidden facts about Americaâs past. Calling for a new way to study history, this book will help readers move beyond traditional textbooks to tackle difficult but important topics, like the American Indian experience, slavery, and race relations. Throughout, Loewen shows time and again how âteaching what really happenedâ connects better with all kinds of students to get them excited about history.
