This acclaimed series has both ready-made and build-your-own theme plans.
Bring the vast scope of U.S. history, geography, regional literature and culture, famous people, and folklore into the classroom with this critically acclaimed series.
Each volume covers a different geographic area and describes the best fiction and nonfiction books, computer programs, periodicals, videos, audiocassettes, maps, and atlases. Regional editors have coordinated the contributions of state editors who bring to their work both a familiarity and an understanding of the notable and special features of their states and regions.
Helpful appendixes list publisher, producer, and vendor addresses. In addition, lists of professional materials for teachers and librarians are included in many state sections. All volumes feature three indexes, providing access by author, title, or subject.
