Early Presidents and Social Reformers is a single volume divided into two separate sections (corresponding to Unit 9 and Unit 10 for schools using the CKHG series in Sequence grade-level order):

  • Early Presidents focuses on the first seven presidents of the United States: George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, and Andrew Jackson. Students learn how these presidents organized the federal government within the framework of the Constitution, saw to the building of a national capital, directed a second war with Great Britain, more than doubled the size of the country, and formulated a “hands-off” foreign policy in the Western Hemisphere. As students learn how our early presidents set precedents for the future of the new nation, they also consider different visions of how the nation and its government should evolve.
  • American Reformers focuses on many efforts to improve American society from the early 1800s to the 1850s, including: the temperance movement to decrease the consumption of alcohol; Dorothea Dix’s efforts to obtain better treatment for people with mental illnesses; Horace Mann’s campaign for free public education; the work of Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, William Lloyd Garrison, and other abolitionists in their crusade to abolish slavery; and, the early women’s rights movement led by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott. Students also explore the early reformers’ legacy in ongoing modern-day struggles for equality and civil rights.

Some content is tied to the “Pathway to Citizenship,” an array of civics-focused knowledge, questions, and activities.
