    I've been wracking my brain for the past week about how I teach a unit on the Okies and fundamentalism in the San Joaquin Valley, and you've just given me my first few slides!

      aw shucks bro - happy to oblige.

      American history - even though in comparison you guys have little of it to study compared to my own green and pleasant's - is a wonderfully rich tapestry.

      Unfortunately if you don't include the bad stuff, there's nothing to make the outstanding progress stuff look so good.

      I dont understand these rosy specs GOP/Bartonist Exceptionalist types at all. Admitting faults and failures is a good way to demonstrate progress and achievements that come later IMHO.

      Good luck mate, and hope the students accept the good with the bad.
