Overview

To know history is to love history–This highly visual survey of U.S. History introduces students to the key features of American political, social, and economic history in a exciting new format designed to ignite in students a passion to know and love history the way that their professors do. The Teaching & Learning Classroom edition of the highly successful The American Journey, provides your students with the most help available in reading, thinking, and applying the material they are learning in the text and in lecture. A series of pedagogical aids, in text and out of class study companions, as well as complete instructor presentational and assessment support make this text the perfect choice for those looking to make history come alive for their students.

 

The path that led the authors to The American Journey began in the classroom with their students.  The goal of this text is to make American history accessible to students.  They key to that goal-the core of the book-is a strong clear narrative and a positive theme of The American "Journey."  American history is a compelling story and the authors tell it in an engaging, forthright way, while providing students with an abundance of tools to help them absorb that story and put it into context.  This text combines political and social history, to fit the experience of particular groups into the broader perspective of the American past, to give voice to minor and major players alike, because the history of America is in the stories of its people.
