All three of my early 20th Century Pocket History comic books at a 25% discount to buying them separately. Included are 'The Endurance', 'The Hindenburg', and 'WW1-Life in the Trenches'. They all contain quizzes and other useful resources, and can be printed out in color, black and white, used as a slide show on a computer, or as a PDF on a tablet. These comics are a visually engaging and alternative way to provide background knowledge or compare and contrast texts on the same topic.

We wanted our students to realize that multiple genres can be used to gather information on any particular person. That is why we created "5 Women...5 Genres". Students will read a play about Amelia Earhart, historical fiction diary entries about Sybil Luddington, an interview about Jane Goodall, a poem about Clara Barton, and an obituary highlighting the spectacular life of Sally Ride. Afterward, there are corresponding reading comprehension printables that are aligned to the Common Core.
