Make learning American History a Story-Telling Adventure
Fifteen high interest true stories, arranged chronologically, breathe life, meaning , and excitement into America's past.
Each story is written in dramatic, narrative form, not "textbook" prose.
A timeline and a boxed summary accompanying each story highlights important historical events occuring at the time of the story. Students gain a "sense" and "feel" for the time period.
Imaginative writing and discussion activities for each story challenge students and encourage creativity. (There are no recall questions!)
