A "must" for every History teacher

Divided We Stand is a wonderful companion to Jim Percoco's A Passion for the Past. It provides a thoughtful and fresh viewpoint toward teaching some of the major conflicts in American History, such as the American Revolution, the Battle of the Little Big Horn, the Civil Rights movement, Gender issues, and Vietnam. Each unit presented covers clear and specific ideas for building the unit, as well as suggestions for extra-textbook sources, such as poetry, videos, fiction, field trips, primary sources, and re-enactors. The writing is engaging and filled with enthusiasm, which you will undoubtedly take with you to your classroom. This source is so full of ideas and practical information that you will find yourself reading it over and over and keeping it on the top of your desk for daily reference. Thanks, Jim, for providing such a terrific source - full of lessons I always hope to develop, but never get to in the rush of the school year.
