Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's social studies textbooks include general social studies textbooks for elementary school grades and specific books on ancient civilizations, geography and world history. Civics, economics, history, psychology and sociology are some of the secondary school textbook subjects available both in print and online. Multimedia assets accompany the textbooks.

Pearson publishes multiple levels of American history, world history, world cultures and civics books. Related online resources include current events, interactive documents, an online skills tutor, chapter summaries and outlines, and test prep.

TCI's online offerings include lessons and learning activities as well as the textbooks. Online games such as a 1920s stock market simulation help teach causes of the Great Depression. Another game, in which students role-play CIA agents, teaches about the United States and the Cold War.
