Journey Across Time, Spanish Edition is an all-new middle school world history program organized chronologically from the first humans and ancient
civilizations to the present. Co-authored by National Geographic and Jackson Spielvogel, Journey Across Times' engaging narrative and outstanding visuals transports students back in time. As co-author, National Geographic ensures that students understand the influence of geography on historical events. The result is a standards-based program with important geography skills embedded in every lesson.
A goal of the program is to address teachers’ concerns about students’ ability to read and comprehend informational text and to help meet the mandates of No Child Left Behind. These concerns are addressed in “Reading Social Studies” skills embedded in every chapter to improve reading skills and comprehension. Foldables, Main Ideas, Reading Focus, and Reading Checks assist students in becoming independent readers. The engaging time lines, maps, and graphics provide the visual appeal to keep students focused. The Standardized Test Practice, Skills Handbook, Geography Handbook, Reading Handbook, Primary Source and Documents Library prepare students for high-stakes tests.
