Description:

This paper takes a look at children's textbooks and the issue of stereotyping. The paper focuses primarily on gender issues. According to the paper, a more fundamental reanalysis of what American history really is must be embarked upon, and until then teachers must strive to supplement textbook knowledge with outside learning and interpretive activities if they want to provide a fuller picture of past and present human life to students.
