Houghton Mifflin Harcourt® brings you resources designed to help you engage students with social studies and enrich classroom instruction.

With partners like HISTORY® and Google®, we’re creating a new arena in the classroom where students can relive, re-imagine, and reflect on our past and present. Our content adheres to both Core Standards and the C3 Framework, giving students a solid foundation for excelling in college, career, and civic life. We help teachers make the most of limited class time and allow students to learn on their own terms through differentiated instruction and interactive tools.

If you have any questions, or would like to be one of the first to see our new K–6 Social Studies program, please contact your Account Executive directly. If you need to locate your Account Executive, visit:
