Pre-reading and post-reading questions guide and motivate students. Students are continually asked to self-monitor their comprehension by interacting with the text. Visual elements on every page, such as illustrations, maps, charts, and graphs, help students to see relationships and conceptualize major events and developments.

Special Features Enhance Student Learning.
