    . . . a unique and imaginative approach to education, taking the student out of the textbook, even out of the classroom, into creative contact with the world outside. Students and teachers will profit immensely from its suggestions.
    - Howard Zinn, Professor Emeritus, Boston University, Author of A People's History of the United States
    . . . smooth, entertaining, witty, and personaljust the right combination of methods, social analysis, and philosophy of history for my secondary certification students.
    - Susan Starbuck, Professor, Antioch University Seattle, author of Hazel Wolf: Fighting the Establishment
    . . . a student-centered, intellectually invigorating, content-open way to engage students in the study of history.

As students investigate possible answers, they make connectionsacross miles and centuries. Along the way, they experience that essentialinsight of the social studies: Point of view has everything to do with howone perceives the world. To this end, each chapter explores projectsconnecting students' concerns with core content and concepts in history,geography, civics, and economics.

Lessons center on the economics of ordinary objects, understanding currentevents in historical context, creating readers1 theater, photodocumentariesand more. While students dig deeply into issues of personal relevance, theyalso master the content and skills mandated in state and national standards.Students learn about history - and about themselves.
