Supplementary Workbooks for Social Studies Adoption 2018
This year California is adopting new Social Studies textbooks for schools. Fisher Hill has an excellent supplementary bilingual series of workbooks to help students learn about U.S. history and geography. The four workbook series is called United States of America Stories, Maps, Activities in Spanish and English.
Each workbook was written to help students learn about United States history and geography. The series is written on a 4th grade reading level in bold 16 point type. It is especially good for students learning a second language, for students who have difficulty with reading, or for older beginning readers. Each book includes stories, maps, and activities. The books are for ages 10 to adult.
Each state is presented by a story, then a vocabulary and comprehension page, next a map with questions, and finally a chart, table, graph, or other type of activity which presents information to the students. Most stories deal with a historic topic. The stories are about people from different racial groups who have helped build this nation. The vocabulary and comprehension page is to be used in conjunction with the story. The map shows the major cities, rivers, geographic areas, and products of that state. The charts, tables, and graphs present information for students to read and use.
When students finish the series, they will have an overview of United States history and geography. The series is intended to be fun and easy to use whether it is done by an individual or by a class. If done by a class, the author hopes students will help each other to do the readings and activities. At the end of the book are an answer key and index.
