Summary:
Student Achievement Series: The Earth and Its Peoples is an innovative survey text and part of a program developed in partnership with teachers and students to meet the learning, study, and assessment goals necessary for student success. Through extensive research and focus groups conducted with a diverse cross-section of students, Houghton Mifflin
presents a groundbreaking solution for skills mastery, understanding, and retention. Feedback from students has been instrumental in all aspects of development--from design and pedagogy to testing and assessment to title and cover. These elements culminate in a textbook program that reflects the way students learn and study best.
As with all texts in the Student Achievement Series, The Earth and Its Peoples incorporates concise, to-the-point coverage; eliminates extraneous material; integrates pedagogy that reinforces key concepts; features a strong, supporting web component for review, testing, and assessment purposes; and provides students with real value for their educational dollar. Like the corresponding full-length version, Student Achievement Series: The Earth and Its Peoples takes a global approach to the study of world history. With its thematic focus on ''environment and technology'' and ''diversity and dominance,'' the text offers a balanced perspective and a comparative approach.
  • Each chapter opens with a set of Focus Questions that correspond to a designated section of the chapter. These questions provide a framework for the material to follow and promote active reading.
  • Where appropriate, key information--such as section-ending Checking In summaries--appears in bulleted format for quick and clear presentation and ample opportunity for students to check their understanding.
  • Tying It Together chapter summaries provide a brief response to each chapter-opening Focus Question, helping students synthesize chapter themes and directing them to areas that may require further study.
  • Key terms are highlighted and defined throughout the text, and appear as a group at the end of each chapter with page references that direct students to the definitions. Pronunciation guides, which immediately follow difficult or unfamiliar words, give students the confidence they need to discuss what they've read in the chapter.
  • The fully integrated Student Achievement Series technology program promotes review, retention, and skills assessment. Icons in the margins of the text link students to web site material such as online quizzing, audio pronunciation guides, and chapter summaries. A range of course management tools further enhances learning and instruction.
  • Titles in the Student Achievement Series are affordably priced, making them ideal for student learning--and student budgets.
  • The Earth and Its Peoples is also available in comprehensive and brief versions.
