Category Description for Story of the U.S.A.:

Similar in structure and content to the Story of Western Civilization series, this reading comprehension series focuses on the story of the United States, from early Native American times to today. There are a few differences in format, however. First, the lesson vocabulary words featured before the reading include the definition, whereas the vocabulary section in Story of Western Civilization requires the student to look up the word in a dictionary and then write a definition. As far as the post-selection questions, the content is pretty similar - short answer, true/false, multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, discussion and vocabulary questions are featured. Two tests are included in each book - one halfway through the book, and another one at the end. One major difference is that there is one answer key for each book in the series, and each answer key contains answers for both lesson questions and test questions. Additional discussion or research activities for each lesson are also included in answer key as well. - Jess

Is this a consumable book? I have 2 children that I will be going through this with. Will I need 2 books?
User on Jun 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: In short, yes, it is designed as a consumable book. There are blanks for your children to write out their answers. However, the last section of each chapter has discussion questions, so, in my opinion, it would certainly be possible to use a single book and discuss all the questions orally.
