Overview

Our students face conflict every day, and one of the best opportunities to help them make sense of it is in the study of American history. Here we find conflict of all kinds, most often as an agent of change. By focusing on the roots of conflict, we can help our students develop a more mature view of their world. By encouraging an empathy for people from the past, we may even be able to promote compassion and tolerance in the future. That's James Percoco's aim with the publication of Divided We Stand.

Divided We Stand was written to assist you in dealing with sensitive and controversial topics in secondary U.S. history classes. Using firsthand accounts and student words, Percoco explores the kind of issues we should be discussing if we are serious about making a better future for successive generations, topics such as gender issues, race, Vietnam, and civil rights. He provides a virtual handbook for teachers, describing specific lessons you can use to study conflict. All manner of resources are explained, with an emphasis on how to access those resources and use them effectively in instruction. There are also templates for the activities as well as critical-thinking worksheets, film synopses, and other tips.

All the sources described are current, and the book reflects recent scholarship in both the arena of pedagogy and methodology, as well as a broader vision of American history. One of Percoco's skills as a teacher is his ability to raise questions with students that challenge their assumptions. Divided We Stand will enable you to do the same.

    A 'must read'for American History teachers

    Divided We Stand is a wonderful companion to Jim Percoco¿s A Passion for the Past. It provides a thoughtful and fresh viewpoint toward teaching some of the major conflicts in American History, such as the American Revolution, the Battle of the Little Big Horn, the Civil Rights movement, Gender issues, and Vietnam. Each unit presented covers clear and specific ideas for building the unit, as well as suggestions for extra-textbook sources, such as poetry, videos, fiction, field trips, primary sources, and re-enactors. The writing is engaging and filled with enthusiasm, which you will undoubtedly take with you to your classroom. This source is so full of ideas and practical information that you will find yourself reading it over and over and keeping it on the top of your desk for daily reference. Thanks, Jim, for providing such a terrific source - full of lessons I always hope to develop, but never get to in the rush of the school year.
