History today is more than just memorizing facts and dates; it's about thinking critically, reading engaging historical novels instead of dry textbooks, and researching with primary sources. Students in my U.S. history classes enjoy "thinking like historians" as they learn how the past of America relates to their future as American citizens who participate in our wonderful experiment in democracy. To encourage them to think like historians and go beyond the textbook, we need historical novels to read as interesting case studies that tell about minorities, controversies, and multiple perspectives from American history. Our community is rural with 50-65% free or reduced lunch rate, so students will not purchase extra reading materials themselves to supplement textbooks from the school. Preparing students with content area literacy skills is essential to helping my students be college and career ready.
