The way we once learned history is now history.
Developed for students and instructors of the
twenty-first century, Becoming America excites
learners by connecting history to their experience
of contemporary life. You can’t travel back in
time, but you can be transported, and Becoming
America does so by expanding the traditional core
of the U.S survey to include the most contemporary
scholarship on cultural, technological, and
environmental transformations. At the same
time, the program transforms the student learning
experience through innovative technology that is at
the forefront of the digital revolution. As a result, the Becoming America program makes it easier
for students to grasp both the distinctiveness and the familiarity of bygone eras, and to think in a
historically focused way about the urgent questions of our times.
