• Exclusive! Foldables—student-made three-dimensional graphic organizers—are

a unique strategy that helps students read effectively and also can be used as

assessment or study tools.

students on track as they learn to read for information and process what they’ve

read.

• The extensive use of graphics, maps, and photography creates a visual/verbal

approach that appeals to all your students.

Relevance is Part of Every Lesson

everyday life in various periods and the “hot topics” of different eras.
