Working Americans 1880-2012
Volume XIII: Educators & Education


Working Americans 1880-2012 Volume XIII Educators & Education highlights American educators - from traditional teachers to unlikely mentors, from coaches to authors, from parents to program innovators. Educators & Education depicts the classroom that is America - from natural environments to thoughtful buildings, from educational television programs to programs for children of immigrants, from war trenches to piano benches.

Profiles examine life at home, at work and in the community. The highly readable narrative is supported by hard facts and real life situations drawn from diaries, private print books, family histories, estate documents, magazine articles and more. These intriguing profiles are further supplemented with information on current events, community issues, pricing of the times and news articles to give the reader a broader understanding of what was happening in that individual’s world and how it shaped their life. In Volume XIII: Educators & Education you will read about educators who:

  • Travel to the Dakotas in 1881 to teach Sioux children;
  • Design school buildings that encourage learning and community involvement;
  • Teach young immigrants the importance of being American;
  • Convince schools to buy IO tests;
  • Discover why Johnny can't read;
  • Convince schools that sex education reduces teen pregnancy;
  • Teach armed officers posted outside their windows during desegregation;
  • Tutor children in South Africa and Teach for American.

To further explore the life and times of these individuals, each chapter includes several other helpful elements:

  • Historical Snapshots: Chronicles major events and milestones, allowing the reader to develop a broader understanding of the time period.
  • Timelines: Defines the background and key events of a particular issue important to the time period.
  • News Features: Excerpted from the local media, these interesting articles bring to life current issues in education.
  • Selected Prices: Examines what things cost during the time period, to further enrich the reader’s understanding. Prices include food items, clothing, jewelry, tickets for leisure activities and so much more.
  • Illustrations: Photographs, news clippings, advertisements, postcards, posters, quotes, songs and cartoons, add interest to each chapter and depth to the reader’s understanding of the world that the individual or family lived in.
