Reviews - What do customers think about What Are You Figuring Now?: A Story About Benjamin Banneker (Creative Minds Biography)?

An excellent biography for children!  Nov 14, 2000
My mother bought me these books when I was in the 3rd grade. They got me through many book reports and biography assignments in elementary school. I had never heard of Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth or Benjamin Banneker before. Even now that I am in college I remember things I learned from these books! I can't listen to a lecture on Washington D.C., slavery or African-Americans and not think about this book! These books are simple enough for any child to understand, and it might just spark they're interest in history too.
What Are You Figuring Now-Teaching History Through Literatur  Aug 20, 2000
The story of Benjamin Banneker has been a great addition to my class. I teach 7th,8th grade resource special education students in an economically disadvantaged part of rural east Texas. We read the story and study it with the use of vocabulary and questions which I have developed. The story is well written and easy enough for my slow readers to enjoy. I am very pleased to be able to teach history in this manner. My class is a reading class but we are able to use this simple book as a jumping off place to teach invention, hard work, overcoming obstacles and a myriad of other character building concepts. Highly recommended...
