Vidal's History--And Yours?

Students watch AMERICAN MASTERS: THE EDUCATION OF GORE VIDAL and apply Guided Reading principles to Vidal's writing. They discuss how to think and question in his way and determine for themselves how political writing can shape our understanding of history. As a culminating activity, they debate Vidal's claim that America "wanted to be like Greece and ended up like Rome."
