Product Description

Have your students explore the sometimes-controversial roles played by some of the most important figures in U.S. History. Using extensive primary and secondary source materials, these thirteen engaging case studies provide a balanced treatment of the lives and times of such notables as Samuel Adams, William McKinley, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, and Cesar Chavez. Use the document based questions about people and key eras in US History to build critical-reading, thinking, and analytical skills. Or, you can truly expand your students knowledge of the individuals and the times in which they lived through the option of putting them "on trial".

You get: Captivating studies of the roles played by 13 prominent figures in US History, including Christopher Columbus, Andrew Jackson, Harriet Tubman, Sitting Bull, Harry Truman, and many others. Thorough background information on each person and the historical era in which he or she lived, followed by insightful key questions. Engaging primary and secondary source materials that provide multiple views of the highlighted events and that shed light on the environment that shaped the individuals actions. An extensive compilation of resources, including a carefully selected bibliography of secondary resources, and a detailed list of multimedia resources. The option of holding a mock trial of each individual, completely supported with "witness lists" student trial guidelines, and more.
