Jackie,

Exactly! I’m on a Revolutionary War kick right now and there is so much interesting research about the impact that enslaved persons and free Blacks throughout the 13 colonies had on both American and British policies/strategies. We ruin the story when we don’t include all the details.

I’m always inspired by the 2016 speech President Obama gave at the opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. The history of the US “is a glorious story, the one that’s told here. It is complicated and it is messy and it is full of contradictions, as all great stories are, as Shakespeare is, as Scripture is. And it’s a story that perhaps needs to be told now more than ever.”

Thanks for the comment! Good luck as you continue to share history’s stories.

I’m a firm believer that if you want to teach history throughly and well, you should incorporate womens history and minority history as you teach. Teaching about the American Revolution? Set aside time to teach about how the slaves influenced the creation of the Declaration of Independence, and how the women helped the war efforts on both sides. Don’t wait until Black History month or Womens history month.

Comment on Post It Notes need to be your new best friend by Mary Ann Tolbert/2021/12/17/post-it-notes-need-to-be-your-new-best-friend/#comment-42805Wed, 19 Jan 2022 00:49:51 +0000/?p=35335#comment-42805I love using simple ways in which to have exit tickets as students leave my classroom. I really like the idea of using color coded sticky notes on the door on the way out of the classroom with the sentence starters. Being able to quickly look over the colors provided before even reading the comments or questions will allow me a quick overview of my lesson between classes and then an opportunity during my prep period to read through the post its more thoroughly.
