Get a Free Book for Your Reconstruction Teaching Story

Thanks to a generous donation of books by author Jewell Parker Rhodes, we can offer you a copy of Sugar for your story on teaching about Reconstruction.

It could be a story about using one of our lessons for middle and high school on Reconstruction or how you have introduced the report, Erasing the Black Freedom Struggle: How State Standards Fail to Teach the Truth About Reconstruction, to your high school or teacher education students.

In appreciation for your time, we will send you a free copy of Sugar. (If you prefer, we can send you a hardback copy of the 2007 edition of Lies My Teacher Told Me by James W. Loewen, thanks to a donation from The New Press.)

Read some of the comments we’ve received to date from teachers across the country.
