An expanded art program strengthens student understanding of society’s reactions to developments and events and includes over 10 new images throughout the books, including art such as Paul Revere’s The Able Doctor, or the American Swallowing the Bitter Draught and Jishiro Miyauchi’s Heart Mountain.
 
Central Questions give students a concept to focus on while reading each project.
These questions are located at the beginning of each chapter and bring the sources together through asking a single question, such as ”What did the creators of these maps choose to include, what did they leave out, and how did these maps help shape European attitudes toward Africa and the Western Hemisphere?” or “Explain the political, cultural, and regional differences that shaped the different viewpoints about faith, science, and the Scopes trial.”
