At last, a history series that tells the compelling story behind the headlines! Using primary source material such as newspapers, political cartoons, songs, and poems, students are transported back in time to events that changed the very course of American history. The compelling drama behind the headlines is revealed as students peel away layer upon layer of fascinating first-hand accounts of these important events. Each book includes a 16" x 21" pull-out newspaper reproduction, as well as excerpts of real newspaper articles that are printed as reproducibles. An excellent tool for teaching how the media delivers news that compares and contrasts the past to the present. An exceptional teaching approach that brings history to life!Rife, Douglas M. is the author of 'Louisiana Purchase' with ISBN 9780768202243 and ISBN 0768202248.
