Engage students and help them make personal connections to people and places all over the world with the myStory features in the Student Edition and online. These stories are told by real teens from all over the world and have been collected by Financial Times journalists, allowing your students to connect to different cultures and regions from the classroom!
Savvas has engaged author Kathleen Krull and esteemed Financial Times journalists to provide high-interest stories with an "on location" feel. These real-life stories are told by teens from around the world and begin each digital and print chapter in the geography program. These richly illustrated stories provide students with a way to make emotional and enduring connections to the content.
Leverage the Understanding by Design® instructional approach, developed by program consultant Grant Wiggins, to enable students to develop a deeper understanding of the geography and history of their world.
Academic research, in particular the Understanding by Design research of author Grant Wiggins, has informed the Magruder’s instructional design and pedagogy. Understanding by Design® is a groundbreaking but commonsense approach to building curriculum, instruction, and assessment centered around Essential Questions and “big ideas.”
Savvas is committed to this approach and has entered into an exclusive partnership with Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe, coauthors of Understanding by Design.
myWorld in Numbers helps students comprehend global statistics by simplifying them—similar to the popular book, If the World Were a Village. For example, "If there were one hundred people in the world, 22 would speak Chinese and 9 would speak English."
Every chapter of myWorld Geography employs the philosophy of making often abstract and difficult geography statistics accessible to middle graders. Using myWorld in Numbers, your students will make connections to data and develop the skills associated with using data to make decisions.
Take students across the globe—no passport required! With innovative online resources, project-based activities, and unprecedented support for all learners, all students will go beyond the printed page and actively experience the world in which they live.
