Each lesson revolves around a central historical question and features sets of primary documents modified for groups of students with diverse reading skills and abilities. This curriculum teaches students how to investigate historical questions employing reading strategies such as sourcing, contextualizing, corroborating, and close reading. Instead of memorizing historical facts, students evaluate the trustworthiness of multiple perspectives on issues from King Philip's War to the Montgomery Bus Boycott, and make historical claims backed by documentary evidence. Reading Like a Historian has revolutionized my teaching. It not only changed the way my students think about history, but it helped me become a more critical thinker as well!

Financial literacy is a lifelong process requiring both academic and practical components. No single textbook or educational program can result in a financially literate adult. Financial literacy textbooks and education programs must be clear and concise, and they may be components of a comprehensive financial literacy curriculum.
