SHORT LESSONS IN WORLD HISTORY
Select your Materials
The first half of the book covers early civilizations, Greece and Rome, the Middle Ages, the growth of European power, and the Industrial Revolution; the second half focuses in unusual depth and detail on how the 19th and 20th centuries played out in five world regions: Asia, Europe, Africa, the Americas, and the Middle East. Each unit features an illustrated overview of a historical period with boldface vocabulary words, critical thinking questions, a one-page biography of a notable figure, at least one map, a "puzzle quiz," and a review quiz. The book is available in two formats: as a reproducible teacher’s edition with an answer key (216 pages) or as a nonreproducible student text (207 pages) supplemented by a separate teacher’s guide (46 pages) containing an answer key and reproducible maps.
