When is a book not a book? When it’s an Online Edition! Our online programs contain the same Student Edition that you find in print, but with a host of additional resources and features.
TextHelp is a text-to-speech feature that allows for a section of the text to be read aloud at either slow, medium, or fast speeds. Student can also select a word to be translated into Spanish.
Multimedia Connections, developed in partnership with HISTORY®, provide in-depth coverage of key concepts and people brought to life in the Online Edition with interactive features, primary source documents, and engaging activities.
High-quality bellringer HISTORY® videos are included with each chapter opener and indicated at point of use with various biographies and features. Where applicable, we’ve included links to the full-length videos as well.
Essential Question Podcasts
The Essential Question at the beginning of each chapter engages students by connecting people, places, and events and by setting a main purpose for reading.
