This fascinating social studies program provides
a survey of world history focused on major historical trends, personages
and events, cultures and their world views. "Real" characters
from each historical era narrate their stories, illuminated by striking
images and background music. Mini "cases" embedded in
the chapters promote discussion, critical thinking, and understanding
of complex issues in history.
Each of nine chapters includes discussion questions,
interactive timelines, follow-up activities, web links for gathering
additional information, evaluation exercises, and other resources.
A comprehensive TEACHER'S GUIDE provides detailed suggestions for
multiple classroom uses and for using World History in a case study
