Biographies For Grades 4-8 Correlated to the Curriculum

Extend the learning through this new biography series. The Library of American Lives and Times use extensive primary resources as it brings American history to life for your students.

Learn about some of the greatest players who helped in shaping America as it grew from a colony to a world super power. Through a chronological narrative, enriched with diary entries, letters, and other primary documents, students will learn about the various stages of our nation's development, as well as learning to think about history from the perspective of both individuals and society.

By learning about history from a particular and unique biographical perspective, each student will learn about the following themes that form the framework for the social studies standards: Culture; People, Places, and Environments; Individual Development and Identity; Individuals, Groups, and Institutions; Power, Authority, and Governance; Production, Distribution, and Consumption; Global Connections: Civic Ideals and Practices.

These books are comprehensive biographical treatments of important Americans, emphasizing not just their lives, but the times in which they lived. Each book is 112 pages with dynamic full-color photos throughout. Text is designed to make the navigation and comprehension of these more extensive supplemental books an easy transition from the third-grade material under the PowerKids Press imprint.

Ethan Allen:
The controversial founder of Vermont, Ethan Allan’s story unfolds on the backdrop of 18th-century life in the New England frontier. In inter-colonial disputes over land grants, Allen took a firm stance against the powerful colony of New York. Later he led the Green Mountain Boys in the capture of Fort Ticonderoga and Crown Point. A hero to some, a traitor to others, Allen lived a life resonating with the military and political obstacles encountered by a colony and a nation fighting for freedom.

"These attractive titles serve not only as quality report sources, but also as general interest titles." - School Library Journal

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - Audio
Gr 4–8—Emily Raabe's biography (PowerPlus Books, 2001) covers the exploits of the larger-than-life, oftentimes controversial founder of Vermont, Ethan Allan. Focusing on Allen's effort to help Vermont maintain its independence from New York and to attain statehood, the book begins with stories from his rowdy youth and follows through to his death His colorful life, bouts of extreme temper, leadership of the Green Mountain Boys in the capture of Fort Ticonderoga and Crown Point, and real commitment to Vermont are covered. Benjamin Becker does an excellent job of bringing enthusiasm to the solid narrative. His pacing and tone will engage listeners. Notes from the text are set apart during the audio presentation by a soft beep followed by a different voice reading the information which serves to expand on a topic presented in the general narration.—Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Public Library, UT
