Student Achievement Series: The Enduring Vision, is an innovative survey text and part of a program developed in partnership with teachers and students to meet the learning, study, and assessment goals necessary for student success. Through extensive research and focus groups conducted with a diverse cross-section of students, Houghton Mifflin presents a ground breaking solution for skills mastery, understanding, and retention. Feedback from students has been instrumental in all aspects of development, from design and pedagogy to testing and assessment to title and packaging. These elements culminate in a textbook program that reflects the way students learn and study best.As with all texts in this series, Student Achievement Series: The Enduring Vision incorporates concise, to-the-point coverage; eliminates extraneous material; integrates pedagogy that reinforces key concepts; features a strong, supporting web component for review, testing, and assessment purposes; and provides students with real value for their educational dollar. Like the corresponding full-length version, Student Achievement Series: The Enduring Vision features an engaging narrative that integrates political, social, and cultural history within a chronological framework. The Enduring Vision was the first U.S. history survey to incorporate sustained attention to cultural history, and is also known for its innovative coverage of the West, public health, and the environment.
