Exploring American Histories opens an entirely new window into the many histories of the nation’s past. It integrates an unprecedented number of primary and secondary sources—both written and visual—in a unique building blocks approach that enables students to hone their analysis skills while they actively learn the fundamental concepts of American history. By weaving sources into the story and culminating in multi-source projects organized around a single topic at the end of each chapter, the book brings history to life while helping students understand how sources form the basis of historical narratives and how to think critically about them.
