Social studies prepares students for informed action and a thoughtful, engaged civic life. Starting with this intention, our modern new social studies programs emphasize inquiry. Students interact with the past through essential questions, project-based learning, and civic discussions. Built using the C3 Framework, US History Interactive and World History Interactive focus on active investigations that let students experience the habits of good citizenship.
Tackle inquiry every day with high-impact, low-prep instruction. Active classroom teaching strategies are found in the front matter of the Teacher’s Edition and at point of use within the topic.
Our foundations are in inquiry. US History Interactive and World History Interactive are built on an inquiry-based learning model. Students will connect, investigate, synthesize, and demonstrate their knowledge of content.
Each topic begins with an Essential Question to jumpstart inquiry. An accompanying digital activity is available on Savvas Realize™.
Take students on a Quest. Practice real-world skills like creating a video docudrama or creating a website, and use these skills to experience historic content. Each Quest follows the C3 Framework for inquiry.
