Synopsis:

Mastering the TEKS in United States History Since 1877 is written in a student-friendly manner, with clear, insightful explanations, and a plethora of historical maps and illustrations. The book presents the United States History TEKS in a way that students can easily follow. The book makes use of the latest educational research, including the recommendations of the National Research Council in How People Learn and of Robert Marzano in Classroom Instruction that Works. A special opening unit presents test-taking strategies students need to perform well on the new End-of-Course tests. Students learn how to read maps, tables, graphs and diagrams. Students also learn how to attack each type of multiple-choice question through our unique metacognitive ¿E-R-A¿ approach: Examine The Question, Recall What You Know, and Apply What You Know to select the best answer. Each of the TEKS is completely covered. Information is organized logically around social studies skills and methods, followed by a chronological approach to United States History, incorporating history, geography, economics, and government. Each Unit Opener serves as an advance organizer allowing students to grasp the essential structure of the entire unit. Each chapter opens with a list of Major Ideas and a Word Wall, serving as advance organizers. This is followed by clear and concise explanations accompanied by maps, illustrations, and graphic organizers. Each content chapter presents the major ideas of the TEKS by focusing on key concepts, facts and people. Applying What You Have Learned and Amateur Historian sections reinforce learning and take students beyond the text. Learning with Graphic Organizers help students who are visual learners to ¿pull it all together.¿ Study Cards at the end of each content chapter highlight essential information. Students are also encouraged to make their own cards to review and reinforce key concepts, facts, and relationships.
