Synopsis

Exploring the Northeast States through Literature by P. Diane Frey

Exploring the United States through Literature describes the best of current print and nonprint materials teachers can use with their students to study individual states. Each volume covers a different geographic area and presents selected materials that represent the uniquely rich and varied history, diversity, geography, industries, resources, famous people, and contemporary culture of each state in that region. Much more than a series of detailed bibliographies, the volumes in the Exploring the United States Through Literature series also describe classroom-tested activities that directly relate to each source.
