Becoming America helps students recognize themselves, their interconnections, and our own time in the great sweep of history. Its contemporary narrative improves upon traditional history books—making clear the connections between the past and students’ lives through a twenty-first century lens.
Infused throughout, recent scholarship grapples with important historical concerns and refocuses on areas often underemphasized framing our past in contemporary cultural and political concerns.
Its student-centered learning environment empowers students to think in a historically informed way about the urgent questions of our times and to participate fully and creatively in America’s diverse and vital democracy. For instructors, a fully supportive teaching package does the heavy lifting so you can focus on what you love.
