19th Century Canals and the Growth of New York and New Jersey.
Singer, Alan, Ed.
Social Science Docket, v2 n1 Spr 2002
This publication opens with a statement by the 2001-2002 National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) President Adrian Davis on the horrific events of September 11, 2001. Davis said that social studies educators need to reinforce the ideals of tolerance, equity, and social justice against a backlash of antidemocratic sentiments and hostile divisions. The article, "A Shared History, A Shared Tragedy," documents that New York and New Jersey have transcended political differences to cooperate in times of emergencies. Other articles in this issue include: "Are We Teaching 'Greek Myths' in the Global History Curriculum?" (A.
