Author tells history teachers of 'Lies'
CRYSTAL LAKE – With a book title like "Lies My Teacher Told Me," one might think historian and author James Loewen wouldn't get the warm reception he received Friday from a room full of history teachers.
But Loewen isn't bashing teachers in his best-selling book with the subtitle: "Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong." In fact, he dedicated the book to all American history teachers who "teach against the textbook."
Nor is Loewen reinventing history in the book; he's merely shaking up how history is taught.
