Engage your students in an exciting journey of discovery. A broad perspective of the historical development of America through 1877.

This series provides graphic portrayals of the historic events and people whose legacies have shaped the world as we know it today. These visual presentations give life to the printed words in textbooks and help students analyze how our history forms the basis for contemporary society.

Linking past and present - By emphasizing links between past and present, Shaping America enhances your students' understanding of contemporary conditions. For instance, current issues relating to ethnic groups such as Native Americans and African Americans are viewed in an entirely different light when one understands their historical roots.

In addition, this series illustrates how perceptions of historical events and personalities are not static, but change as historians access new sources of information.

Multi-media approach engages students - With vibrant videos and in-depth Internet links, this series teaches the process of research and analysis while engaging your students in an exciting journey of historical discovery.
