Synopsis

Flocabulary has taken the educational world by storm. It's a dynamic new tool for teaching and learning. Now teens can hip-hop their way to history success! Featuring an audio CD with 45 minutes of original, educational, and cutting-edge music, this latest entry in the innovative Flocabulary series turns U.S. history-from pre-Colonial days through World War II-into an enjoyable experience. No more yawning through lists of dull, dry dates: this effective and engaging combination of rhythm and rhyme makes remembering the basic curriculum as easy as apple pie. The topics range from the first meeting between the Native Americans and the European explorers to the Seeds of Revolution ("Taxin' and Representin'"), from Lincoln and the Civil War to the Industrial Revolution, from the Great Depression to Bombs Over Berlin. It's perfect for any student preparing for the AP placement test or the SAT II.
