Review:

"The visual element of this text is great. Students are media consumers; this content allow those well formed habits to be used for learning. The visuals on the page are extremely engaging and grab the reader's attention." - Julian Chambliss

 

"The greatest strength of Visions of America is the 'read-ability' and the relaxed narrative form of writing. The writing style helps keep students engaged in the chapter and keeps them from losing interest. The pictures, illustrations and maps help make the material more reader friendly as it engages other aspects of learning comprehesion." - Robert Brennan
