THE INQUIRY ARC IN U.S. HISTORYAnswer compelling questions by interpreting primary source documents


By Jonathan Burack. These inquiry-centered activity books pose compelling questions about important topics in U.S. history and provide multiple primary sources to help students develop answers. Each unit follows the Inquiry Arc and its four dimensions, including an overarching question, a contextual background essay, and approximately ten primary sources. Handouts guide students through analysis of the sources from four perspectives (historical, geographical, civic, and economic) and offer additional discipline-specific questions. Each unit concludes with five optional summative activities that push students to take what they've learned and apply it to real-world situations. Grades 5–8. Bibliographies. Illustrated. 8½" x 11". MindSparks. Approximately 170 pages each. ©2017–18.
