The unit’s Social Studies Stories explore different perspectives, literature, primary sources, and biographies.
Tools like differentiated reading levels, text-to-speech, main ideas, and highlighting provide extra reading support. Students can build their vocabulary with checks for understanding and vocabulary cards.
