We are pleased to announce that ABC-CLIO's Defining Moments Downloadables have been awarded the 2010 EDDIE award for Teacher Tools in the Social Studies category.
"The ComputED Gazette's EDDIE Awards target innovative and content-rich programs and websites that augment the classroom curriculum and improve teacher productivity. Some selection criteria are academic content, potential for broad classroom use, technical merit, subject approach and management system. Winners are selected from titles submitted by publishers around the world."
Defining Moments is a unique series using alternative history — posing questions such as "what if key events had come out differently?" — to teach both history and critical thinking skills. This series of primary source-based lessons ($5 each) covers the whole American history.
