Features of the Teacher's Edition
  • Differentiated Learning Approaches The Teacher's Edition draws together and charts a compendium of literacy strategies, historical thinking skills, and differentiated learning approaches in the introductory section.
  • Supports Both Literacy and History Learning Each of the early chapters focuses on a different literacy skill. Students have the opportunity to practice and master each skill as they progress through the textbook. Though each chapter differs in length, they all have the same components, so that students can learn to make connections. Major, overarching questions drive the content of each chapter.
  • An Inquiry-Based History Approach Each topic is inquiry-based. Students quickly learn that the historian plays the role of detective: asking questions and amassing enough clues to put together a "picture" of some historical event or personality and to weave these into a sufficiently broad understanding.
