by Vivian Bernstein

Language Level: High Beginner, Low Intermediate

One of the most beautifully illustrated low-level history series on the market, this full-color program whisks students on a story-like journey through America. Each book offers over 20 chapters of rich readings, complete with full-color photos, drawings, charts, and maps. Difficult words are bolded throughout the readings and introduced in a Think About as You Read section at the beginning. Every chapter concludes with a Read and Remember fill-in-the-blanks exercise; a Think and Apply exercise focused on key reading concepts (identifying the main idea, cause and effect, sequencing events, drawing conclusions, categories, etc.); a Skill Builder activity which explores the topic through various graphs and maps; and a journal writing task. Every group of related chapters is followed by a review unit, plus a glossary and index allow for quick reference.

Book One/To 1865: The Settlers of America, Building a New Country, The United States Grows, and The Nation Grows and Divides.

Book Two/Since 1865: After the Civil War, The United States Becomes a Modern Nation, Problems at Home and Across the Sea, Our Changing Nation, and Challenges in Today's World.

Teacher's Guide: Offers strategies for all units and chapters, as well as blackline masters for review and assessment. Answer keys for all student book activities and blackline masters are also provided.
