Starting with the landing of the Norse on the coast of Newfoundland, the readings introduce the 13 colonies, the Alamo, Abraham Lincoln, and Wilson and the League of Nations, and continue through events up to 2005. Major vocabulary words are indicated in bold print and defined in the margins. Maps, illustrations, activities, and review quizzes are included. The book is available in two formats: as a reproducible teacher’s edition with an answer key (230 pages) or as a nonreproducible student text (222 pages) supplemented by a separate teacher’s guide (44 pages) containing an answer key and reproducible maps.
