Supporting Common Core with A History of US

Maria Garriott and Susan Dangel

A History of US

  • Teaching materials that are meant to accompany A History of US, an award-winning 10-volume textbook series that has been recommended by CCSS as exemplary nonfiction text.
  • Provides multiple opportunities for English Language Arts or history/social studies teachers to fulfill Common Core State Standards mandates with challenging, engaging lesson plans.
  • Lessons align with CCSS ELA Reading Standards for Informational Text 6-12 and Reading Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies for grades 6-12.
  • Primary source documents often present challenging vocabulary, so the lessons provide additional scaffolding suggestions for these readings.
  • The nation's most influential reading experts-including Lucy Calkins, Stephanie Harvey, and Janet Allen-enthusiastically recommend A History of US.
