Additionally, an optional companion to the book is a separate teacher's guide, which has lesson plans keyed to the state's instructional standards for social studies, answers to section and chapter reviews, four different types of student activity worksheets, tests and answer keys, bibliographies, and resource suggestions.Now in its fourth edition, this book has been the best available New Mexico textbook for middle school teachers for nearly twenty-five years.
