Wow, @learnfreckle sure has some racist trash material in its social studies. "How much of the world was explored by 1482?" You mean, by non-white people? MOST OF IT.
More crap from @learnfreckle which is ridiculously biased. It's 1482--most of Western Europe was "dominated by the Catholic Church." The materials are ridiculously biased towards a British Protestant-centric worldview, like something from the 50s.
Then there's this little gem of a study question from @learnfreckle that makes me wonder if the United Daughters of Confederacy wrote their material.
Did you know that Indigenous peoples in the Northeast were warlike and aggressive? You will if you study with @learnfreckle IDK, I recall something called the "Great Law of Peace," but YMMV. (Also, cool to know that 3 sisters agriculture only existed in the Southeast? Cool cool.)
More from @learnfreckle . It's so ridiculously anglo-centric. Apparently French and Spanish colonialism doesn't exist. There are so many factual issues here- with removal/ assimilationist policies assigned to (English) colonists that were actively exterminationist.
It's 2020 and @learnfreckle has yet to discover that "European" is not synonymous with "British," and that the slave trade did not, actually, begin in 1619.
Uh, no, @Learnfreckle actually slaveholders *didn't* spend much on clothing and feeding the enslaved. And the enslaved weren't just passively not invested in their work.
One of the "fun" parts of the @Learnfreckle Civil War is: students are assigned a part write diary entries about how they feel about things like secession, John Brown, and the Emancipation Proclamation. I'm not sure what the value is of forcing children to take on these roles:
If your child's school is using @learnfreckle for its social studies materials, be aware they're learning racist, anglo-centric nonsense. /fin
PS. Obviously it has never occurred to @learnfreckle that real, live Indigenous children exist. Or that encouraging non-Indigenous children to DRAW A PICTURE OF ALL THEIR RACIST STEREOTYPES might be a bad idea.
Imagine the harm done to a Native child who has to look at these offensive stereotypes in the name of "education." @learnfreckle is perpetuating harm.
