More than 200 commonly assigned primary source documents with audio

MyHistoryLibrary eText

The eText format allows students to take notes, highlight, and search in each document. To help with context, a brief abstract accompanies each primary source document. And, each document comes with audio — so students can listen to a reading of the document, too.

Chapter video launchers engage students in learning about the past

Key Topics Videos

Created by Pearson, the Key Topics Videos introduce each chapter with a clip of a historian reviewing some of the pivotal historical moments covered in the chapter. Each video is accompanied by a brief introduction to set the stage for the video, a critical-thinking question that helps students consider an important issue before they watch the video, and a brief listing of topics students will learn after watching the video.

Everything you need to foster better writing, all in one place

Writing Space

Better writers make great learners — who perform better in their courses. Designed to help you develop and assess concept mastery and critical thinking, the Writing Space offers a single place to create, track, and grade writing assignments, provide resources, and exchange meaningful, personalized feedback with students, quickly and easily. Thanks to auto-graded, assisted-graded, and create-your-own assignments, you decide your level of involvement in evaluating students' work. The auto-graded option allows you to assign writing in large classes without having to grade essays by hand. And because of integration with Turnitin®, Writing Space can check students’ work for improper citation or plagiarism.
