Steady Encouragement

After each new topic is presented, students answer a few questions about the main ideas. This keeps students focused, actively processing the information, and constructing new knowledge.


Presentation and Exploration

Each chapter offers concise presentation of key concepts. Additional investigations guide students through the examination of real-world artifacts and case studies to put the concepts into context and test the limits of the ideas presented.
