I love this book because it teaches us about important people who have made a significant difference and improved lives.  It bypasses founding fathers and industry moguls in favor of regular folks who stood up for a cause.  It is a readable 'people's history, geared to middle school students, although my Dad picked it up and is reading it cover to cover. — From 101 Changemakers : Rebels and Radicals Who Changed U.S. History by Michelle Bollinger & Dao X. Tran

Description


In the great tradition of Howard Zinn, 101 Changemakers offers a -peoples' history- version of the individuals who have shaped our country for middle school students. In the place of founding fathers, presidents, and titans of industry, are profiles of those who courageously fought for social justice in America: Tecumseh, Harriet Tubman, Mark Twain, Cesar Chavez, Rachel Carson, Harvey Milk, Henry Wallace, and many more. 101 Changemakers aims to provide young students with new ways of understanding how history is written and made.
