Product Description
While the internet has certainly revolutionized communication in the 21st century, the invention of the printing press in the mid-1400s had the same force and impact on society of that time. This is the story of Johann Gutenberg and the printing press, following his life and the development of what became the first mass-production industry. Students will learn more about the innovation that opened the world of thought and learning to a vast new public and greatly contributed to the development of modern civilization.

This Common Core-aligned text is teacher and student-friendly and written for use in Grades 5-8.
