PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you want a lesson about Jefferson that goes DEEP into his psyche, this is for you. This Presentation tackles a very tough issue. Thomas Jefferson was a man of paradox. His most obvious paradox, one that is not lost on students, is that he wrote those beautiful words in the Declaration of Independence, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal", yet he was a life-long slave holder. This lesson looks to Jefferson's house, Monticello, for clues that he was struggling internally with this obvious hypocricy. This is a big favorite lesson among my students each year.
