The author provides background information on the history, culture, customs, politics, and economy of the country, while the teen describes for readers their points of view on teen life there. The teen authors not only inform about facts, but explore their own thoughts on ideas on the future of their nations. It s one-on-one learning and exploring.Each title in this series includes the series foreword by Professor Kum-Kum Bhavnani, a sociologist at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and an award-winning filmmaker with a focus on international women s studies.

Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each title referring back to subjects covered within. They challenge the reader s comprehension of the material they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each title as well and give readers suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. Educational Videos are offered in chapters through the use of a QR code, that, when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a moment in history, a speech, or an instructional video. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text. A Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the backmatter containing terminology used throughout the series. Words found here broaden the reader s knowledge and understanding of terms used in this field.
