The Great Decisions series makes history come alive by putting students in the roles of historical and contemporary leaders. While wrestling with the same difficult problems these people faced, students experience the uncertainties and pressures involved in decision making. They broaden their perspective about social issues and their understanding of how choices in the past have shaped the world of the present.

The Great Decisions Teachers’ Guide provides practical information for teachers about using these books in the classroom. Prepared by author Nathan Aaseng and his wife, Linda, an experienced classroom teacher, the guide presents ideas for class, small-group, individual, and extra-credit activities. The description of the subjects and themes of each chapter are related to suggested social-studies units. Also included are three sample lesson plans and more than 200 suggested discussion questions, as well as an evaluation rubric.
