IDEAS THAT SHAPE A NATION
A Survey of Historical Ideas Important to the Development of the United States
Beginning with Aristotle and ending with Alvin Toffler, Smith titles his 39 chapters for seminal thinkers in America’s story. Each chapter begins with a one-page introduction followed by extensive excerpts from writings and speeches, then a simulated interview. Student activities include vocabulary terms, review questions, and "What do you think?" writing exercises based on direct quotes from the man or woman under study.
