5.0 stars

Grade Level is 7.6 using the Flesch-Kincaid readability test.

This is the challenging and inspired true story of a little girl who was determined to learn to read, and who went on to be a teacher, the founder of a college, an adviser to statesmen, and a great humanitarian. Mary McLeod Bethune was the fifteenth child of hardworking and god fearing parents. She was the first of their children to be born free. Her ancestry was wholly of African origin, a point of pride throughout her life.

Mrs. Bethune worked untiringly to restore—through education—her people's faith in the magnificent heritage that is rightfully theirs. During the many years of and tribulation, she refused to give up her fondest dream—her own school for Negro children. And, as a shining monument to her hard work and faith, she has given to black youth the thriving institution of Bethune- Cookman College in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Runaway Russia: An American Woman Reports on the Russian Revolution – Ebooks for Students
Rating
0.0 stars

Flesch-Kincaid Reading Level is 6.4. Primary source reading material. The writer went to Petrograd in 1917 to report on the Russian revolution.

A "Gripping Account" —The Wall Street Journal

Florence Harper was the first American female journalist in Petrograd. Sure that trouble was coming, she waited “as I would for a circus parade.” From the women’s bread protests of the heady first days when the mob seemed “good-natured” to the later horror of the “Marseillaise”-singing crowds being mowed down by machine guns, she remained undaunted, repeatedly returning to the streets despite the dangers she courted daily. She searched the morgues so that she could do a story on the victims. ‘‘I did not wait to count the coffins. It was too harrowing,” she reports. She did watch the hated police being thrown off roofs and also ran the gantlet of the mutinous Kronstadt sailors, who she recalls “all looked like cutthroats.” Allied officers at her hotel smashed the contents of its cellars till they were “literally knee deep in everything from champagne to vodka” to prevent the mob from getting at them. The stoicism and sympathy with which she endured it all shine forth from this gripping account.

Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

This lesson covers the five U.S. wars fought in the 1900s and other recent historical events. We recommend teaching the lesson, U.S. Wars in the 1800s, prior to this one. Take time to emphasize the pronunciation difference between the terms 1800s (eighteen hundreds) and 1900s (nineteen hundreds) so that students can distinguish correctly between the two test items, Name one war fought by the United States in the 1800s and Name one war fought by the United States in the 1900s. Covers civics test items 11, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 86, and 100.
