It is not often that I find engaging non-fiction books that are historically accurate and digestible for 8th grade students. These two books by Jason Reynolds and Kenneth Davis are all of those things. There is nothing more important to me than making sure my students see themselves in United States history; that all of my students learn from class materials where they can see themselves. I want them to understand how the perspective presented in the textbook is only one account of what happened and that it is important to gather information from multiple perspectives in order to learn the entire context of events. These books will allow them to gain knowledge from a variety of perspectives. In the classroom, these books will allow students to engage with on grade level text and participate with their classmates in discussions not only about the history of the United States, but how that history contributes to the present and future. Ultimately, reading these books will help them to be better consumers of information, question accuracy of information presented to them, and provide them a framework to view our history and empower them as they grow into adult citizens.
