Making America: v. 1 by Carol Berkin
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Making America: A History of the United States, Brief, International Edition", presents history as a dynamic process shaped by human expectations, difficult choices, and often the surprising consequences. With this focus on history as a process, "Making America" encourages students to think historically and to develop into citizens who value the past. The clear chronology, straightforward narrative, and strong thematic structure emphasize communication over intimidation, and appeal to students of varied learning levels. The brief fifth edition retains a hallmark feature of 'The Making America' program: pedagogical tools that allow students to master complex material and enable them to develop analytical skills. Every chapter has chapter outlines, chronologies, focus questions, and in-text glossaries to provide guidance throughout the text. A new feature called Investigating America gets to the heart of learning history: reading and analyzing primary sources. The text's new open, inviting design allows students to access and use pedagogy to improve learning. This is available in the following split options: "Making America, Brief Fifth Edition" (Chapters 1-30), ISBN: 0495897566; "Volume I: To 1877" (Chapters 1-15), ISBN: 0495897574; and, "Volume II: Since 1865" (Chapters 15-30), ISBN: 0495897582.
