Turning Points (Group 1)


Certain events have irrevocably changed the course of
history. Sometimes this change affects a specific group of people; other times,
the effects reverberate around the world. Historical events such as the Great
Depression, the Trail of Tears, and the Harlem Renaissance have set the stage
for the current American political and cultural climate. With the support of
compelling narratives, informative sidebars, and detailed timelines, readers
learn about the events of the past, helping them contextualize current events—a
crucial step in the process of thinking critically about both the past and
present.
