Digital Landing Page


Norton Ebooks give students and instructors an enhanced reading experience at a fraction of the cost of a print textbook. Students are able to have an active reading experience and can take notes, bookmark, search, highlight, and even read offline. As an instructor, you can even add your own notes for students to see as they read the text. Norton Ebooks can be viewed on—and synced among—all computers and mobile devices.

The America ebook includes:

• Imbedded author videos, including the new Chapter Overview Videos
• Pop-up key terms definitions
• Enlargeable images and maps


InQuizitive is Norton’s award-winning, easy-to-use adaptive learning tool that personalizes the learning experience for students and helps them master—and retain—key learning objectives. Through a variety of question types, answer-specific feedback, and gamelike elements such as the ability to wager points, students are motivated to keep working until they’ve mastered the concepts. Students then come to class better prepared, giving you more time for meaningful discussions and activities. InQuizitive can also improve students' test grades when assigned consistently for points, as a part of the overall course grade. The convenience of LMS integration saves you time by allowing InQuizitive scores to report right to your LMS gradebook.

InQuizitive for history helps students master the key concepts and historical developments in each chapter. For the Eleventh Edition, authors have added additional primary-source, map, and image questions. This is in response to reviewer feedback requesting more opportunities to engage students in analytical thinking and to challenge students with questions at the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy.
Question types include:
• Primary-source document excerpts
• Historical images
• Maps
• Author videos

NEW History Skills Tutorials

The History Skills Tutorials consist of three modules that provide a framework for analyzing primary-source documents, images, and maps. They are available via the digital landing page URLs above using the code that comes with the purchase of a new book. Tutorials begin with author videos modeling the analysis process, while later interactive assessments challenge students to apply what they have learned. Students with a used book can purchase standalone access, as with InQuizitive.
