Portrait of the United States of AmericaThe Portrait of the United States of America workbook discusses the United States, where it has been and where it is today—people, geography, history, government, business, education, science and medicine, social services, the arts, sports and entertainment, and the media. The text is approachable and easy to understand, and the combination of culture and history is sure to pique students' interest. It is excellent for Civics classes.

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.
