U.S. HISTORY: People and Events

U.S. HISTORY: People and Events

Designed to reinforce students' informational text skills as they learn about important figures and developments in U.S. history, each of these brief lessons consists of a one-page reading followed by a related activity. The activities, which involve exercises such as completing graphic organizers, free-response questions, map analysis, and puzzles, also sharpen students' historical thinking skills by asking them to identify the impact of an event; analyze and explain relationships between people, events, and ideas; analyzing primary and secondary sources; and integrating visual information with text. Students also get practice in such reading comprehension skills as identifying the central idea, citing textual evidence, making inferences, summarizing or paraphrasing ideas, distinguishing fact from opinion, conducting research, identifying cause and effect, making comparisons, and more. Correlated to Common Core and state standards. Grades 7–12. Illustrated. 8½" x 11". Mark Twain/Carson-Dellosa. 94 pages each. ©2017.
