This is an excellent resource for objectives-based education. Because the foundation of the social studies curriculum is the family, A Window into History gives teachers an engaging method for introducing students to books that are structured as personal narratives of family histories. These books, both fiction and nonfiction, combined with highly appropriate activities and projects, build themes around community, history, and cultural or social differences. In addition, the variety of cultural backgrounds in the titles makes A Window into History especially valuable in programs that emphasize multicultural issues. Recommended teacher resource for grades 3-8.
