Lies My Teacher Told Me -Chapter 5
Transcript of Lies My Teacher Told Me -Chapter 5
Three-way race religions Indian African European most textbooks completely leave out
Textbooks cover up the fact that racism was present and instead they create the idea that white men dominated.
We have had slavery longer than we have been free
After the Civil War black men were asking for civil rights
Novels had different views on slavery such as, Uncle Tom's Cabin that viewed slavery as an evil thing but Gone with the Wind saw it as an ideal social structure.
In textbooks we are told that taxes and other conflicts between the south and north and any other reason was the cause of the Civil War. However, the cause was in fact slavery. Chapter 5; Gone with the Wind Lies My Teacher
Told Me By Jenny Hafer and Hailey Jones Let's Get it Right! A New Way to Teach History Although this is a fabulous quote, if we do not know what are true history is we don't know the real mistakes we made and how to prevent them. We believe that History is pointless to learn about if what we learn isn't even always true. In our everyday learning we think that we should not just automatically trust what every book and every teacher says. Question it! Another way to improve our ability to learn history, is to connect it to ourselves and our lives. "History informs us of past mistakes from which we can learn without repeating them. It also inspires us and gives confidence and hope bred of victories already won." -William Hastie
