Description

Explore American History is a full-year curriculum for high school students participating in alternate assessments based on alternate achievement standards. It has four components: Student Book, Tools of History Mats, Teacher’s Manual, and DVD.

The Student Book has 9 chronological chapters from Early Years to A New Century. These follow a consistent format: Anticipatory Set, Vocabulary, History Stories, and Quiz. The simplified text is heavily illustrated and is intended to be read to the student, so there’s no minimum reading level required. The curriculum emphasizes the use of important social study tools. Students study biographies and analyze videos to give perspective to the historical content.

The Teacher’s Manual has a lesson outline for each page of the Student Book with Big Ideas, Additional Facts, and Extension Activities.

The DVD contains 7 historical video clips that link to chapters in the Student Book.
