Black History Month Offer

Posted by Rhonda S. Edwards on January 16, 2011 at 3:12 AM Comments comments (0)

Thinking about a story to use for Black History Month?  The Secret of Atalaya is perfect.  Set around Pawleys Island, SC, this mystery is solved by three Carolina cousins who find clues leading to the discovery that escaped Gullah slaves fled to northern Florida and merged with Seminole indians.  The resulting Black Seminoles is little read about in history.  This book will introduce students to the Huntingtons of Brookgreen Gardens fame, acquaint them with Huntington Beach State Park, and lead them on what may have been the first underground railroad in America. 


To celebrate Black History Month and just for Facebook users, beginning February 1st and lasting the entire month, my publisher will offer this title at 50% off the price.  For $3.99 you can download the PDF from a special link for Facebook users. 


Make sure to check out the page on this website devoted to The Secret of Atalaya.  Here you will find plenty of website links, resources, and lesson ideas to make your planning a breeze.  Please become a member so that special offers such as this will come your way.  I hope you will also return with comments and testimonials from your experiences in the classroom.  I also welcome email from students.
