Pillars of Culture consists of five soft-cover chapters with five companion student activity books. Section quizzes and chapter tests measure student comprehension.
Highlighted vocabulary words, life principles, and activity questions enhance student’s potential for success. Students cannot read this course without developing a deep appreciation for the nation’s heritage. Each vignette exposes the good, bad, and ugly aspects of human nature. Role models in athletics, arts, academics, industry, government, communication, and religion demonstrate how men and women of various ethnic backgrounds applied their talents, skills, character, and temperaments to overcome obstacles to make major contributions to American culture.
