Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0472033492, Paperback)

Students who struggle with reading, whether or not they are new to English, need high-interest reading material. Drawn from the panorama of history, the twelve stories in Amazing Stories from History span continents and centuries. The textbook features stories that students will find dramatic, vivid, and compelling and stories that students will want to read, want to finish, and want to understand. Teachers and students alike will consider these stories--which feature people like Touissant Louverture, Squanto, Hugh Glass, Sacagewa, and Tokyo Rose--interesting and amazing.


Accompanying the stories are a variety of reading comprehension and vocabulary (including words on the Academic Word List) activities. In addition, students are provided with a map and timeline of the historical event, which creates rich opportunities for exploring history with students. Although the stories take place in the past, no expertise in history is required to teach them.
