Reading Like A Historian The Reading Like a Historian curriculum engages students in historical inquiry. Each lesson revolves around a central historical question and features sets of primary documents designed for groups of students with diverse reading skills and abilities. This curriculum teaches students how to investigate historical questions by employing reading strategies such as sourcing, contextualizing, corroborating, and close reading. Instead of memorizing historical facts, students evaluate the trustworthiness of multiple perspectives on historical issues. They learn to make historical claims backed by documentary evidence. How do I use these lessons in my classroom? The 91 lessons in the U.S. curriculum, 41 lessons of the world curriculum, and the 5 lessons in the introduction to historical thinking unit can be taught in succession. 1) Establish relevant background knowledge and pose the central historical question. *Note: United Streaming requires a subscription to Discovery Education.

Los Presos Políticos en Estados Unidos: ¡Aqui está la lista! El Dr. Néstor García Iturbe, periodista e investigador, publica la presente Lista de Presos Políticos en Estados Unidos, constituida gracias a dos organizaciones, la National Jericho Movement y la Social Movement Prisoners. Los presos así enumerados totalizan 157 prisioneros políticos. Explica el colega: Hemos solicitado a otras organizaciones sus listados, algunas como la de los Indios Nativos Encarcelados nos han planteado que su listado es confidencial y no pueden darlo, sin embargo por sus propios comunicados conocimos que existen 200 nativos, de origen indio en cárceles estadounidenses, en cuyas acusaciones se pone de manifiesto que los mismos fueron detenidos por luchar contra el sistema, por lo que son presos políticos. Sabemos que esta lista está incompleta, que aún quedan muchos casos que deben incluirse en la misma. El caso de los CINCO HEROES CUBANOS ha sido incluido por estas organizaciones en sus listas, no quisimos quitarlos de una y dejarlos en la otra. F.C.I. ? ?
