Teachers, this is a really wonderful videoconference series from New Links to New Learning– to learn more about the book, visit this link. This book takes a look at the Supreme Court’s role in civil rights in the United States, discussing Native Americans, women, Japanese Americans and African Americans throughout the history of the country. This series is great for middle school and high school students; both authors participate, talking about the issues within the book and the writing of the book.Interested? Let me know! Each session is one hour- students meet at 1 OR 2 p.m. CST. My new e-mail address: email@example.com. The cost of the series is $400 for New Links members, $500 for non-members.
