Tell Us the Truth: A Collaborative Project
Cirillo, Nancy R.
Schools: Studies in Education, v14 n2 p246-265 Fall 2017
"Tell Us the Truth" is a collaborative article by a professor of English and her freshmen students in a core humanities course from the Fall 2016 entitled Readings in Atlantic Slavery. The students read novels, slave narratives, memoirs, and history. The essay follows the growing interest of the students as they read against the presidential campaign taking place during that period. The students were given the option of writing a final paper on the topic of why they should have been given evidence-based, unpoliticized history during high school. They all chose this option. The professor provides a narrative and cites passages from the papers submitted in support of their reasonable plea for learning what they came to call "real history"--history that is factual and unsanitized. [This article was co-written by the students of HON 124, Fall 2016.]
