Description: Social studies offers students a chance to look at the connections among the peoples and nations of the world, the effect of science and technology on society, and ways to practice good citizenship. Social studies is an important subject for young learners. Not only are questions answered about society and history, but the idea of learning to question is taught and valued. In the social studies, students must read to learn. The complex nature of geography, history, economics, government, and technology subjects put struggling readers at a disadvantage. This collection of Civics stories approaches the challenge of expository text with simply written curriculum-based social studies stories that will help students navigate through facts and conclusions common to social studies reading. The free Curriculum Resources PDF includes key terms and review questions for each story.

Mike Baron is an internationally known scripter of comic books who has done such celebrated characters as The Punisher (recently made into a major Hollywood movie), Nexus, and The Badger.
