Social Studies

History Alive! is a comprehensive 6-8 curriculum solution designed to engage and motivate every student. Through the stories of the intriguing people, exciting places, and fascinating events that make social studies relevant to their lives, students gain a global perspective. They also learn the social studies themes and skills they need to become informed, participating citizens who consider diverse points-of-view, use critical thinking skills, and are active in their communities.

Completely aligned to the national standards, the program’s research-proven content provides rigor and depth in an easy-to-read, highly visual format that instantly connects with all types of learners. Because students also learn through interaction, the engaging hands-on activities and technology explorations in the History Alive! Social Studies program provide the high-interest level tools to foster that connection.

Teachers are also provided with the tools they need to turn that connection into content knowledge for every student in class. With components like the Homework and Practice Books, Online Assessment, and complete teacher resources to plan for and implement differentiation, teachers can help all students succeed.
