Teaching Revolution ’67:  A Curriculum for High Schools

Created in collaboration with:

“Documentary films that explore historical material and historical territory have become enormously important in the classroom,” says the Rutgers historian Clement Price, who consulted on the teaching materials for Revolution ’67, a film in which he also appears. “What Margaret Crocco has done so well, especially in the curricula developed for the films by Spike Lee and the Bongiornos, is to explore what Jim Horton [James Oliver Horton, a historian at George Washington University] calls ‘the tough stuff of American history’—not just slavery, but the 20th century narrative of civil disorder; the conflicts over racism, gender and sexism, and the oppression of minorities—and bring it widely into K-12 classrooms.”
