Features

Accessible Reading and Reading Strategies Are a Priority

• 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.

• A Guide to Reading, Reading Checks, and a Summary in every chapter keep

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

• TIME Notebooks allow students to step into the past, learning about

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

• What Life Was Like and Hands-On History fully engage students in learning

and give them an understanding of parallels between earlier generations and

theirown.

National Geographic Brings its Unequalled Expertise to Every Page

• Brand-new, colorful, easy-to-read maps help students understand the where

and why of history.

• Geography and History features show students how geography and events

intertwine to create the history of a location or nation.

Continual Practice in Social Studies Skills

• The program emphasizes skill development—from reading maps to analyzing

primary and secondary sources to exploring the connections between history and

geography, economics, government, citizenship, and current events.

Abundant Opportunities for Students to Demonstrate Proficiency

• The Princeton Review Standardized Test Practice provides systematic,

ongoing test preparation. As your students learn, they are simultaneously

preparing to demonstrate their knowledge of American history in standardized

test formats.
