Introducing the new version of History Alive! United States through Modern Times

We are excited to announce the launch of the new version of our History Alive! United States Through Modern Times program. This new edition goes deeper into modern U.S. history while keeping the same hands-on engagement in social studies. We’ve updated the online resources to a fresh format with more built-in lesson support.

New and Robust Content
From expanding the “The Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression” and  “World War II” lessons into their own new chapters, the new program helps students gain a deeper understanding of modern U.S. history.

Fresh Unit Structures
Units now open with geography challenges and close with timeline challenges, giving students strong context for content.  

Primary Sources and Inquiry-Based Lessons
We added primary source investigations and inquiry-based activities to each unit to help students build skills. 

Enhanced Visuals
A fresh new look and layout are coupled with amped up visuals, streamlined directions, and a user-friendly interface.
