Memo from the principal:
March 19, 1970
Mrs. Rosalind Reiman
Dear Mrs. Reiman,
The report on your lesson, "How do the unions try to help the workers?" reminded me of an article I read in High Points about 30 years ago. A teacher was being kidded for having motivated a lesson on the Southern plantation system by dragging in a bale of cotton, perching himself on it, and strumming on a banjo "01' Black Joe."
I have always had a warm place in my heart for social studies teachers who go out of their way to think of stimulating motivations. Your singing of "Talking Union Blues” which you accompanied on a guitar, Is In a fine teaching tradition. Regrettably, it Is going out of style .
Sincerely
Howard L. Hurwitz
Long Island City High
