By Amy Headley and Victoria Smith. Eight collections of teacher-created, standards-aligned, RTI-based and differentiated lessons take students through topics in early U.S. history. The 6–13 lessons per book begin with a background essay (incorporating maps, illustrations, "fast fact" boxes, and biographical sketches), followed by multiple-choice comprehension questions and an activity (e.g., timelines, mapping, KWLH charts, journaling, short essay, assembling models); a vocabulary quiz follows every three or four lessons. Teacher pages have procedures and handout masters. The first four titles are for grades 3–7; the second four are for grades 4–8. Bibliographies. Glossaries. Answer keys. 8½" x 11". Splash! Publications. 73–140 pages each. ©2009.
