Our World Today Ц People, Places, and Issues (Interactive Student Edition)


OUR WORLD TODAY: PEOPLE, PLACES, AND ISSUES (2003 edition) makes the world an understandable place for students. With its unique integration of culture, history, economics, government, and geography, "Our World Today" challenges middle school students to explore the issues and challenges of each region. Co-authored by the National Geographic Society, the program is loaded with motivating activities and the skills, reading strategies, and content that will engage your students. National Geographic cartographers created every map and atlas, so you're assured of pinpoint accuracy.  



Reading success is a high priority. Built-in active reading strategies, such as Foldables, Guide to Reading, Reading Checks, and Reading Review, enable all students at all levels to read and understand the program's content. Foldables are innovative, student-made three-dimensional graphic organizers used as reading, assessment, or study tools. Students of any ability can create Foldables, and hands-on experience immerses students in learning.
