We, Too, Sing America
Harris, Violet J.
Reading Teacher, v62 n5 p450-455 Feb 2009
Who is an American, what is the American experience, and what historical events are important enough to include in books for youth? These complex ideas are examined in a bolder, intellectually fresh manner in information books, biographies, and histories that have been published over the past several decades. Some examples of recent works are discussed because of the increasing curricular focus on civic or social studies education and history.
