Should we celebrate Columbus Day?

Fun debate question for the students when they come back on Tuesday.  James Lowen also has a great chapter about this in his book Lies My Teacher Told Me.  If you do not have this book and wish to borrow it, I would be happy to loan my copy.

Check out this blog post on what many schools are doing now.
