Meet the Author

Richard Di Giacomo graduated from San José State University with a BA in Ancient and Medieval history, a BA in Social Science and an MA in American History. He has been a teacher for over 20 years and has taught in a variety of schools from private and continuation schools to public high schools. He has taught everything from at risk and limited English students to honors and college preparatory classes. The subjects he has taught include US and World History, Government, Economics, Bible and Ethics, History of the Cold War, and Contemporary World History.
He has been a reviewer and contributor to textbooks, and a frequent presenter at social studies conferences on the use of simulations, videos, and computers in education. Rich’s love for history and geography led him to develop this unique book, which allows students to go beyond worksheets, and map work to investigate and create on their own! He firmly believes that the geography and history shape who we are and the world around us. If people do not understand these subjects, they do not really know who they are.
