California is a state that is rich with diverse people. Its artists, activists, writers, scientists, and politicians have had a positive impact not just on the state, but also on the rest of the world. This Interactiv-eBook introduces students to some of California's influential individuals including John Muir, Dorothea Lange, Sally Ride, and Cesar Chavez. By examining primary sources like maps, images, letters, and photographs, students will achieve literacy in social studies as they learn how to investigate and reflect on various social, economic, cultural, and geographical topics. This nonfiction text integrates social studies content and literacy and includes text features like a glossary, index, captions, sidebars, and table of contents to build academic vocabulary and comprehension. Aligned to the National Council for Social Studies (NCSS) and other national and state standards, the text is leveled to support above-, below-, and on-level learners. The Track It! culminating activity provides an opportunity for assessment that challenges students to apply what they have learned in an interactive way, and Your Turn! challenges students to connect to a primary source through a writing activity. Learn about California's movers and shakers with this Interactiv-eBook!
