History is more multifaceted, complex, and non-linear than standard textbooks would have students believe. Walch's Focus on US History series will encourage students to actually think about history, rather than regurgitating a simple set of concrete facts. Creative activities will extend and reinforce any American history curriculum through thought-provoking, analytical activities.
The Era of World War II Through Contemporary Times (1939-present) covers the United States and World War II, foreign policy and the Cold War, the postwar United States, civil rights and equal rights, and contemporary times.
Divided into four chronological and thematic sections that are guided by the National Standards for History, each unit includes a teacher guide and student background page in addition to student activity worksheets. Reading selections draw from primary document sources as well as contemporary material designed to help students with decision-making comprehension, comparative skills, map skills, and interdisciplinary connections. Teacher guide sections provide an overview of the unit, objectives, and specific teaching suggestions for each activity. Assessment questions are included in the back of the book with the answer key.
121 pages reproducible for a single teacher. Answer key, glossary, and additional resource list included. Grades 7-11.
