History Alive! The United States makes U.S. history a palpable experience for middle school students. This survey course follows U.S. history from the nation’s fledgling years through the Great Depression and World Wars to the Civil Rights Movement and contemporary American society. Students ponder the problems of America’s English colonists and gain an understanding of the desperation and hope of turn-of-the-century immigrants.

Geography Alive! Regions and People creatively challenges students to use the tools of geography to view, analyze, and understand the world around them. The seven mapping labs and the program’s case-study approach turn students into geographic thinkers. As an additional benefit, the program has been carefully designed to build students’ content area reading skills.
