Civic Unrest: Investigate the Struggle for Social Change Booklist: Few topics are timelier, more divisive, and more difficult to fully understand than civic unrest. Lusted uses Rosa Parks as the archetype for defining civil unrest in the opening chapter. . . The "Vocab Lab" is a major strength of the book, providing not only a glossary of unfamiliar terms but also activities designed to put those new terms into use. Comic strips comprise the bulk of the book's artwork, using reoccurring characters to explain basic civics principles. The text deals with contemporary issues in the U.S. but also explains relevant examples of civic unrest in the Middle East, South Africa, and India. The "Inquire and Investigate" section encourages readers to put many of the theories and concepts explained in earlier chapters into practice. This is a complete and thorough resource dealing with basic civic principles for the middle-level social- studies classroom. Comparative Religion: Investigate the World Through Religious Traditions Booklist: "The abstractions of religion make it a tricky topic for objective and clear middle-level resources, but this dynamic book manages to be both informative and accessible. . . By examining complex beliefs and doctrine in an accessible and reader-friendly format, Mooney effectively teases out the commonalities among major world religions." Human Migration: Investigate the Global Journey of Humankind School Library Connection: ." . . Three of the special features of the book are primary source extensions that encourage students to use their smartphones or tablets to explore resources further, vocabulary labs that help the students learn new words related to the topic, and Inquire & Investigate labs that are hands-on activities students may do to really dig deeper. All of the words in the vocabulary labs are defined in a glossary in the back of the book. The book starts with a timeline, and ensuing chapters follow in chronological order. Index. Recommended."
