This versatile book contains 13 units which focus on controversies surrounding such figures as Columbus, Andrew Jackson, Harriet Tubman, Sitting Bull, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, and Gloria Steinem.
Students read a short background article then study primary and secondary sources to answer key questions. They can also hold a mock trial of the person with charges, witness lists, and forms provided. Drawn from all eras and representing a wide range of men and women, the documents include speeches, letters, diary entries, memoirs, news accounts, laws, official papers, and literary excerpts. Each unit has an extensive bibliography.
