SFF should consider adding excerpts from Black Reconstruction in America so her students are aware that there are data-based arguments more compelling than just the anecdotal … stuff she's currently using.

Subject: Fishkin on Antiracist Pedagogy

The Center For Mark Twain Studies is please to publish an open-access, digital edition of this essay which originally appeared in the print journal, *Mark Twain Studies*, produced by our friends at The Japan Society of Mark Twain:

In the essay Shelley Fisher Fiskin reveals which Twain texts she has used in her classes over the last decade, and why!

There are some familiar figures - Huck, for instance - but several shorter, "minor" works which Shelley finds provoke engagement and critical thinking.

For the aid of fellow teachers, we have embedded several of these less familiar texts in the page with Shelley's essay, as well as hyperlinked to many of the complementary texts she alludes to.

Among them, "My First Lie & How I Got Out of It," originally published in the "Mark Twain's Christmas Book" issue of Pulitzer's *New York World.*

So, I guess that makes this a holiday production.

Best to all.
