“The Concord Review offers young people a unique incentive to think and write carefully and well…The Concord Review inspires and honors historical literacy. It should be in every high school in the land.”

I think you will enjoy getting this quick piece of feedback on our new set of journals, which have just arrived. Thanks.
Rick Bisset, a veteran teacher with lots of previous international experience, including Korea and Malaysia, sent this note to the U.S. History colleagues here. He also updated later to say his class was still going strong with The Review well into the class period, at which point he had to pull them away.

Subject: The Concord Review
So, I passed out The Concord Review at the beginning of class. I didn’t say anything except “Take a look at this.”
Here it is 10 minutes later, as I type this, and everyone is reading it and not saying a word. Amazing! What a powerful tool. Great idea, Bill.

“The achievement of The Concord Review’s authors offers a different model of learning. Maybe it’s time for us to take it seriously.”
