An Inquiry into Liberty, Slavery, and Thomas Jefferson's Place in American Memory
Bickford, John H.; Hendrickson, Ryan C.
Social Studies, v111 n1 p1-10 2020
This article presents a guided inquiry into Thomas Jefferson's place in American memory. It centers on Jefferson's liberty-based articulations and his involvement in slavery, which are paradoxical when juxtaposed. Evocative primary sources and competing secondary sources ground the inquiry. Discipline-specific strategies direct students through the stages of inquiry. Close reading, text-based writing, and informed action intertwine with history literacy, historical thinking, and historical argumentation. Discussion focuses on logical curricular extensions.
