Revel History

Experience Revel

Designed for how you want to teach — and how your students want to learn

Revel is an interactive learning environment that engages students and helps them prepare for your class. Reimagining their content, our authors integrate media and assessment throughout the narrative so students can read, explore, and practice, all at the same time. Thanks to this dynamic reading experience, students come to class prepared to discuss, apply, and learn about history — from you and from each other.

Revel applies new technology to bolster a traditional assignment — reading the chapter. With a trusted narrative at its foundation, Revel employs a set of features that immerses students in history and holds them accountable for the reading. Engaging video complements the narrative. Interactive maps contextualize the story. And Source Collections get students thinking critically about evidence and argumentation. Revel drives students to read more history more effectively, and ultimately to come to class well prepared.
