American Hero:A Journey Through 400 Years of American History

Primary textbook for the middle school American history curriculum

This primary textbook combines middle school American history content standards with a picaresque adventure story. A fictional teenager comes to America with Columbus, becomes an immortal being, and stands witness to the real-life birth pangs, heartbreak, breakthroughs, and ultimate promise of the United States. Over the course of four centuries of this expansive and inclusive narrative, we meet major influencers such as Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt, as well as the African American, Native American, and immigrant men and women who had a profound impact on the development of the American story.
Student “Re-Action” pages are included for each chapter.

Time Travel Tours:Your Guide to Human History

Primary textbook for the middle school world history curriculum

What if time traveling aliens ran tours of human history? This primary textbook offers a firsthand, eyewitness experience to the rise and fall of civilizations on five continents. During a “week-long excursion,” a humorous tour guide leads us as we stack bricks in Mesopotamia, build pyramids in Ancient Egypt, argue with Greek philosophers, meditate with Indian gurus, scale the Great Wall of China, and stand with Galileo as he defends science. The content standards for middle school world history are covered and there is plenty of time for photo ops during the tour. Student “Re-Action” pages are included for each chapter.
