Rethinking Columbus has changed the way schools teach about the "discovery" of America. This new edition has over 80 essays, poems, short stories, interviews, historical vignettes, and lesson plans that re-evaluate the legacy of Columbus -- right up to the present day. Packed with useful teaching ideas for kindergarten through college.
A rich chorus of multicultural voices comes together in Rethinking Columbus to replace the murky legends of Columbus with a deeper understanding of history from 1492 to the present.
