Living history.

Dear Teacher,

Welcome to our first issue for the 2006-2007 school year. This year, we are introducing a new program, America and Your World Today. The series will draw on primary sources--including newspaper articles, diaries, and eyewitness accounts--and show students how such documents of the past and present help shape our world today. In our first article of the series, "Hurricane Katrina: One Year Later," readers are introduced to young people in New Orleans who survived America's worst natural disaster (see p. 7). Their heartbreaking accounts provide a "living history" from which readers can learn and draw strength. We hope many will be inspired to take action. (See p. T-2 for details.)
