Additionally, Connect History includes numerous map and primary sources activities, the majority of which are auto-graded and can be easily assigned. (*Fully integrated eBook included in Connect History.)

LearnSmart effectively assesses a student's knowledge of course content through a series of adaptive questions, intelligently pinpointing concepts he does not understand & mapping out a personalized study plan for success, allowing instructors to focus valuable class time on higher-level concepts.

SmartBook is the first and only adaptive reading and learning experience. SmartBook is changing the way students read. It creates a personalized, interactive reading experience like no other by highlighting important concepts, while helping students identify their strengths and weaknesses. As a student reads, the reading experience continuously adapts by highlighting content based on what each student knows and doesn’t know. This ensures that he or she is focused on the content needed to close specific knowledge gaps, while it simultaneously promotes long-term learning.

How to Analyze a Primary Source is a brief, illustrated tutorial on how to read and analyze a primary source which can be bound into the text or assigned in Connect History. In Connect History the tutorial is a video activity. As students watch, they are prompted at various points in order to confirm understanding.
