Toward this end, the history has been carefully enlivened, including not just a catolgue of events, but a panorama if the men and women who breathed life into the past and gave freely to the growth of America. One Nation Indivisible includes quotations from many of our past heroes and eyewitness accounts of famous events - from the signing of the Constitution to the storming of San Juan HIll.
Written in a clear, narrative style, One Nation Indivisible has been geared to challenge but by no means discourage junior high school students. The content of this book has been evaluatedby outstanding historians, insuring that the latest historical research has been included in it.
Within the ten units are 31 chapters. At the end of each unit is a time line, a comprehensive series of individual research activities, and a group of suggested activities such as plays, panel discussions, and debates for the entire class. The chapters themselves are divided into sections, each of which is followed by a group of questions called "Looking Back." These excercises, which include both rate and thought questions, are ideal for daily assignments.
Photographs, original drawings, sketches of artifacts, and a full complement of maps, charts, and graphs heighten the student's interest in this book and add much to the information contained in it.« less
