This History Heights eBook is the important story of when President Theodore Roosevelt invited his friend and advisor Booker T. Washington to dinner at the White House. Neither one of them expected the fallout that followed. Composer Scott Joplin has an important (and surprising!) role in the story, too.
The Story of A Guest of Honor is told in engaging text and is supported by outstanding historic photographs, newspaper clippings of the era, and more. The story, with the included activities, comprise a complete "open and go" study of this important event in American history.
Middle-grade reading level is suggested for independent study, but the material is adaptable for all ages in the classroom or in homeschool use, and for lifelong learners. Please be aware: As you well know, the topic of race relations remains a difficult one. The newspaper clippings are an accurate and vital reflection of the culture of 1901 and as such, use language and ideas that are not acceptable today. That said, this story is an especially important part of our history, and parental participation is encouraged to help students understand. For younger students, you may choose to omit the newspaper clippings.
