Synopsis

War Terrible War Middle/High School Teaching Guide, a History of Us Teaching Guide Pairs with a History of Us: Book Six by Hakim, Joy Hakim

The teaching guides developed for Middle/High schools were created to support 8th grade American history content standards and learning frameworks. They present concise menus of ideas for teachers working with developing critical thinkers. Where the Elementary level teaching guides focus on comprehension, the Middle/High School level teaching guides emphasize critical thinking and drawing connections. The core of each chapter lesson is a Connect-Understand-Check Understanding format, with activities for prereading, comprehension and extension. In addition, each lesson presents activity suggestions for linking disciplines, further research, nonfiction reading, geography skills and differentiated instruction. Groups of chapters are contextualized by Part activities, which include setting context for reading, written assessment prompts, debate suggestions, ethics discussion prompts, projects, and activities. Also, each Part contains a cooperative learning activity developed for A History of US by Johns Hopkins University's Center for Social Organization of Schools. Reproducible assessments, worksheets graphic organizers and rubrics are found at back.

Reviews

[An] exciting series... Ms. Hakim braids multiple narratives together to bring alive material long dead to children's imaginations. --The New York Times Book Review Joy Hakim didn't rewrite history. But she did make it a whole lot more fun to read. --Education Week Readers young and old will find themselves amused, amazed, and engrossed by this searching, opinionated survey. In every sense a fresh look at our history. --Kirkus Reviews Merits every accolade, starting with the most personal: I couldn't put it down. --Washington Post Book World The liveliest, most realistic, most well-received American history series ever written for children. --Los Angeles Times A thorough and accurate narrative of our nation's history. --The Philadelphia Inquirer I think this is the best American history written for young people that I have ever seen. --David Herbert Donald, Harvard University

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
