Cultural Literacy: Sally Heming

If we are going to face the truth about our national past, then perhaps perhaps this Cultural Literacy worksheet on Sally Hemings will be of some use in your classroom. I think most students would be very interested in the life of Sally Hemings–indeed, in her entire family.

Reading her story while revising this post brings to mind a great novel I read last autumn, In the Fall by Jeffrey Lent, which I cannot recommend highly enough.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
