Zeman, Anne; Kelly, Kate
A volume in the Scholastic Homework Reference Series, this document provides fourth to sixth grade students and their parents with the information they need to complete U.S. history assignments. With the help of Dial-A-Teacher, which has operated a telephone helpline since 1979, this American history reference guide presents easy-to-understand answers to students' most frequently asked questions. This source offers a full range of information directly related to the fourth through sixth grade U.S. History curriculum. Divided into nine parts, part 1 looks at North America before 1775. Part 2 covers the American Revolution (1775-1783). Part 3 provides information about the birth of a new nation (1783-1800). Part 4 outlines the expansion west (1800-1900). Part 5 covers the divided nation (1820-1865). Part 6 deals with the Civil War (1861-1865). Part 7 provides material about Reconstruction and the birth of Civil Rights (1865-1877). Part 8 outlines the era of industrialization (1850-1900). Part 9 covers the 20th century and the United States as a world leader. The volume concludes with two appendices. Appendix A contains a time line of events since World War II. Appendix B has information about the American government, copies of the Amendments to the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, and a list of U.S. Presidents. The Scholastic Homework Reference Series is a set of unique reference resources that provide ready information to answer commonly asked homework questions in a variety of subjects. (ML)
