The "Essential Question" preview asks students to find ways to relate the issues and principles of the question to their own lives, while the "connect to MyStory" page invites students to chart predictions on how the essential question relates to the countries in the chapter. "Word Wise" exercises emphasize vocabulary through games, word maps, and crossword puzzles. "Take Notes" graphic organizers will help students synthesize concepts and create a visual study guide. The "Essential Question Writers Workshop" provides an end-of-chapter opportunity to show understanding of the chapter. 303 pages, softcover.

    This student "essential questions" workbook is designed to be used with the sold-separately Magruder's American Government Homeschool Bundle, and is perfect for additional students taking a co-op course, or siblings who want to use this curriculum in a homeschool setting.

    This Essential Questions Journal will help students to better understand the (required & not-included) text through reinforcing questions and activities. The Unit Essential Question is repeated at the beginning of the unit page, and warm-up exercises help to bring out new ideas by tapping into what students already know while encouraging them to branch out in their thinking. Additional activities direct students to gather new information, synthesize it, and draw conclusions, while expanding their thinking and integrating their own opinions. The "essay" exercises begin with quotations, and require students to integrate their own thoughts, guiding questions from the textbook, and journal activities. Additional essay warm-up exercises will help students prepare their thoughts and arguments before they write a final essay. 220 non-reproducible, perforated pages, softcover.
