California: A Student’s Historical and Cultural Handbook is a concise yet comprehensive history of California. Although it is written primarily for students studying the state’s history as part of their school curriculum, anyone with an interest in the state’s history will find it useful and informative. Very little of the material available today on this subject is age-appropriate, and most is not designed for students to easily read and comprehend. There is even less material available conforming to the state’s teaching requirements. (Most of the available material is found only in lesson plans provided by instructors or on various websites.)Students in California are required to study and pass one year of California history, including the physical and human geographic features of the state, pre-Columbian societies, social, cultural, economic, and political life, milestones in California history, and the relationship between state and federal government. The state has developed 32 separate blocks of instruction that educators must address while teaching the California history block. Unfortunately, while educators can teach history, there is very little students can read and learn on their own and in conjunction with classroom teaching.California: A Student’s Historical and Cultural Handbook author Lee W. Merideth rectifies this shortcoming. Divided into relatively short paragraphs and sections by category, students can use the entire book or certain sections related to the current block of instruction. The book also contains interactive and downloadable online content and guides for students and teachers alike.Educators, parents, students, and everyone who loves reading about our past will find California to be an easy-to-read history that conforms to state requirements, improves reading comprehension, and is especially helpful in educating students about the state in which they reside.About the Author: Lee W.
