“As a former high school history teacher, I know how challenging it can be to convince students to read comprehensive and dry history texts. 20th Century American History for Teens solves that problem by striking a balance between accessibility for teenagers and integrity to the study of history. If you're in search of a text that students will actually read, then this is the book for you!” —Jeffrey Sullivan, former history teacher
“Carrie Cagle’s 20th Century American History for Teens is a refreshing and relatable approach to explaining the era to teens in language they can understand and enjoy. Teens who read this book will learn and retain the information as they embrace the storybook style of the book. Every American history teacher needs this in their back pocket as a guide to connecting the content to teen students.” —Lisa Chapman, world history teacher
“20th Century American History for Teens feels like the history book that we have all been waiting for. From page one, the narrative is interesting and personable, making connections to our lives today. Ms. Cagle's definitions of important historical eras, such as Reconstruction and the Gilded Age, were funny and memorable, told using metaphors that are still stuck in my head. Young adults will not only learn a great deal but may actually be interested in history presented like this.” —Shelly Ley, M.S. in education, music educator
