Becoming America, Volume I https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_250-high/0077275608.jpeg?404URL=https://shop.mheducation.com/mhshopweb/images/no_cover_140.png

The way we once learned history is now history.

Developed for students and instructors of the twenty-first century, Becoming America excites learners by connecting history to their experience of contemporary life. You can’t travel back in time, but you can be transported, and Becoming America does so by expanding the traditional core of the U.S survey to include the most contemporary scholarship on cultural, technological, and environmental transformations. At the same time, the program transforms the student learning experience through innovative technology that is at the forefront of the digital revolution. As a result, the Becoming America program makes it easier for students to grasp both the distinctiveness and the familiarity of bygone eras, and to think in a historically focused way about the urgent questions of our times.

Also available with this edition is McGraw-Hill Education’s Connect, the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective. Connect is sold separately and does not come automatically with the purchase of the textbook.
