this little dress was given to me by a friend who couldn’t bring herself to donate it to the goodwill. this dress reminds of me my primary school days, i wore a uniform from first to twelfth grade. i wore a jumper dress, which was similar to this one, but plaid and not as tailored. although i received a very traditional education. i was lucky enough to grow up in a home with a father who was very political and without hesitation would tell us the truth about the history of our country. nine years ago, when i got my certification to teach in nyc, i taught middle school humanities, the program directors gave each teacher a copy of the book, lies my teacher told me by james loewen. here’s an excerpt from the book: “…the teaching of history, more than any discipline, is dominated by textbooks, the books are boring…[they] exclude conflict or real suspense. they leave out anything that might reflect badly upon our national character.” it was such a great resource. this book, along with a people’s history of the united states by howard zinn is what i used to guide my teaching of history. giving thanks for these books and for all educators who’ve guided my teaching and who teach children the truth about our history.
