American Values and Freedoms – School Library Connection

Each title in the series addresses the historical significance of our Constitutional freedoms and the application of these freedoms since our nation’s founding. Each of the books follows the same format, providing reference aids at the end that include essential facts, additional resources, and source notes. In addition, each of the books includes discussion starters at the end of the chapter, captioned color and black and white photographs, and thought-provoking text boxes. Interspersed throughout are “perspective” pages that highlight an event through a specific lens. Aligned to Common Core standards and correlated to state standards, this series offers readers an opportunity to think critically about these freedoms as they evolved through time. Glossary. Index. Timeline. Susan D. Yutzey, Retired School Librarian, Columbus, Ohio.
