Overview

The editors present teachers of all grade levels with their favorite classroom-tested lessons that can be adapted to different teaching levels and a variety of settings. The lessons draw from many subjects, including history, environment, and culture. Topics include reclaiming displaced heritages, educating for citizenship, cultivating homelands, and building cities. The guide grew out of Keeping and Creating American Communities, a multiyear curriculum development project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Writing Project.
