Young Reader's Edition, Volume 1

This Teacher’s Guide to the Young Reader’s Edition of Wilfred McClay’s Land of Hope: An Invitation to the Great American Story is an invaluable supplemental resource for teachers who use the Young Reader’s edition as a textbook for middle-grade courses in US History. Prepared by McClay in collaboration with John McBride, a master teacher with more than thirty years of secondary and collegiate teaching experience, it is an exceptionally rich and useful tool for classroom instructors.

Each chapter of this Teacher’s Guide receives a five-part treatment: a short summation of the chapter’s contents, questions and answers about the chapter, a list of key names and terms appearing within the chapter, a crossword puzzle based on those names and terms, and one or more primary source documents for class analysis with accompanying questions and answers. Longer documents are broken into shorter passages with questions interspersed to help younger readers. This Teacher’s Guide also features a collection of map exercises as well as special units to assist instructors in teaching students about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the two-party system.
