Members, log in for full details

This interactive database delivers an unbeatable combination of authoritative research sources, standards-aligned lessons and activities, and coverage of recent events for all 50 U.S. states--a priceless resource for teachers, librarians, and students alike. The United States encompasses plains, forested areas, swamps, mountain ranges, deserts, and even polar regions and volcanic islands (Alaska and Hawaii). This enormous diversity of geography is matched only by the range of cultures and demographics within our great country�__��� and by the substantial challenges each state faces in managing its economics, health care, education, immigration, and crime. United States Geography provides information in an engaging, visual format that helps students gain a deeper understanding of the places and people that make up our nation. Whether the curriculum requires focusing on an individual state or the nation as a whole, this database has been created in collaboration with scholars, educators, and librarians to meet all of your students' state geography needs--all in one place. ABC-CLIO's exclusive CLIOview provides advanced search functionality to make demographic comparisons between states regarding over 60 types of statistics, while the Analyze sections supports student inquiry by posing such debates as "How has human habitation affected the Southern U.S. environment?" and "What steps should California take to deal with its ongoing water management issues?" Users can also access valuable additional content, such as biographies of important political and cultural icons, contemporary and historic Native Americans, and environmental figures. This resource is available in formats designed specifically for academic libraries or public and K-12 libraries. The Academic database includes a feature titled "Idea Exchange." This collection of peer-reviewed articles presents multiple perspectives on core topics and is designed to encourage deeper scholarly exploration and discussion. The articles serve as models of well-constructed argumentative essays. And, they are citable for college- and university-level research papers. Users will find current MLA 7th edition, Chicago 15th ed., and APA 6th edition citation options to help simplify the bibliographic process.
