Acerca de


The United States Constitution announced to the world that, in America, all people were created equal. But even then, some people were more equal than others. The long struggle to put all Americans on an equal footing has defined the moral character of our nation for two centuries. The Fight for Freedom traces the history of the Civil Rights, Womens Rights, and Gay Rights movements, stopping at key moments along the way to check in on the Great Debates that made Americans think hard about what their country really stands for. Young readers will discover that, although the arguments may have changed, the central question of discrimination is still very much in play. In that way, The Fight for Freedom helps them make connections and experience history in a living, breathing way. Aligns with Common Core Language Arts Anchor Standards for Reading Informational Text and Speaking and Listening. Text contains critical thinking components in regards to social issues and history.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-7-This series asks readers to consider contemporary and historical debates in America, from immigration to the use of firearms to the relationship between church and state. The authors craft both sides of their arguments with care. Chapters are introduced as questions, such as "Is the freedom of others worth fighting for?" The "Affirmative" and "Negative" sides of the debate are presented in boxes at the bottom of the page. Questions set apart in bold font throughout the texts encourage critical thinking. Unfortunately, the large summary boxes are distracting on pages that already contain graphics, texts, and photos. There should be a hierarchy of emphasis on the dated design elements; instead, every visual competes for attention. There is a dated textbook quality to the boxes with arrows that point up and down. These books are well written and carefully researched, but the clunky design could be a deal-breaker.α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal. LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
