The textsstrong social emphasisunderscores the ldquo;humannessrdquo; of Americas history as it is revealed in the everyday lives of ordinary Americans. Reading the private human stories of ordinary individuals encourages students to reflect on the shared complex past-filled with notable achievements and thorny problems-that they have inherited. ldquo;Recovering the Pastrdquo; essaysacquaint students with the work that historians do by introducing them to the fascinating variety of materials that historians use to understand and interpret the past. Novels, political cartoons, paintings, diaries, clothing, popular music, congressional speeches and hearings, advertisements, and movies are just a few of the types of evidence examined. ldquo;Reflecting on the Pastrdquo; critical thinking questions in each essay offer students an opportunity to consider what can be learned from each type of evidence. ldquo;Analyzing Historyrdquo; graphicscombine tables, graphs, and photographs to present socioeconomic data that illustrate the intertwining of factors and events that significantly influence American history at a particular point or era in the nationrsquo;s past. Helping students understand how to read graphs and interpret data, each ldquo;Analyzing Historyrdquo; graphic connects a historical event or process to its social consequences and is accompanied by Reflecting on the Pastrdquo; critical thinking questions. American Stories,which open each chapter, are about individuals whose experience mirrored their era people. Conclusions refer back to the opening vignette in summing up the chapter. Each chapter ends withQuestions for Review and Reflection, which provide opportunity for classroom discussion and test preparation.
