Key Documents in American HistoryThis is a unique collection of the most important documents in American history. Introductions help describe the circumstances surrounding many of the documents. These are valuable resources and wonderful learning tools. Presented in workbook format, they give students practice in reading, comprehending, and analyzing primary source documents. Volume I covers the years 1492–1870. Volume II spans the period from 1870 to the present.

The history passages in this workbook were selected to give the reader a sense of the time and place they report. While not comprising a comprehensive history, the topics will support and enlarge an ongoing study of our nation's history.

Reading comprehension is also addressed in this workbook. The last questions at the end of all passages are open-ended. Some questions require an understanding of the passage. Others simply use the theme of the passage as the basis for an invitation to creative writing. If you would like your students to get more writing experience, the open-ended questions will work very well for this purpose.

Many of the multiple-choice questions simply require direct feedback of information given in the passage. Some, however, require some thought and analysis. It is important for your students to practice and learn these reasoning skills.
