The Americans: Reconstruction to the 21st Century is a highly integrated program that provides students with a practical and motivational approach to studying U.S. history and to helping them think critically and reflectively. The story of America – its diverse people, its varied landscape, its sturdy democracy, and its great events – is told through the voices of Americans from all walks of life. As students read the narrative, they will place historical events in context and will consider the events' meaning for the future. The Americans: Reconstruction to the 21st Century offers many special features that appear throughout the text to enhance and support student learning like Geography Spotlight, Primary Sources and Personal Voices, Difficult Decisions in History, Charts, Infographics and Time Lines, Historical and Political Maps, and much more. A Reference Section, including Skillbuilder Handbook, Economics Handbook, Atlas, Facts About the States, Presidents of the United States, Glossary, Spanish Glossary, and Index, is collected at the back of the text.
