Rethinking Columbus: The Next 500 Years by Bill Bigelow
(Editor), Bob Peterson (Editor)
There are always two sides to every story. This book is a revised and
expanded edition of a popular 1991 booklet that changed the way "the
discovery of America" is taught in classroom and community settings.
The book includes a role-play trial of Columbus, materials
on Thanksgiving Day, resources, historical documents, poetry, and more.
Rethinking Columbus: The Next 500 Years helps children understand who
they are and why they are here. It also celebrates over 500 years
of courageous struggles and lasting wisdom of native peoples.
