Featuring various genres of texts including poems, songs, scripts, documents, and other material, this resource will help develop proficient and fluent readers. As readers regularly read and perform these American history related texts or passages, they improve decoding, fluency, interpretation, and comprehension. Students will revisit the past through the voices of history including James W.C. Pennington, former slave, Carl Sandburg, and John F. Kennedy.
