    I really hope the error on page 143, referring to “Fort Sumter, North Carolina” has been corrected.

    Zinn is sometimes used in lessons from Reading Like a Historian (http://sheg.stanford.edu/rlh), along views that may contrast or take a different point of view — a good way to challenge kids to think for themselves. Zinn tends to resonate with students – almost all of mine have asked for copies of the book — wish I could give it to each of them! I teach 8th grade.

    I would love to know if anyone has written study guides or even lesson plans for this book. I want to teach this to my 11 year old son and would love some help.

    Does anyone know if anyone has developed study guides for this book?
