Arranged chronologically, the chapters in the Student Text covers World History from Early Civilizations until present day 21st century. Interesting sidebar features are integrated throughout, including biography features, "history in your life" segments, "document-based readings" of primary documents, "civics connections," a "focus on economics," "technology connections," maps, and "writing about history" sidebars. A timeline is also included at the beginning of each chapter which puts events in a broader perspective. Clearly written chapters are complemented by the many photographs of people, artifacts, and landscapes.
The student workbook complements the student text with multiple activities for each unit; each page is clearly labeled with the textbook pages it accompanies. A variety of exercises, including short answer, word-bank, multiple choice, crosswords, puzzles, and chart completions are included. 144 non-reproducible pages, softcover.
The Teacher's Edition includes reduced-size reproductions of the student text, as well as the student workbook. Answers to the review questions in the text are provided in the margins; however, line-listed answers for the activity book are grouped together in the back. "Chapter-at-a-glance" bars provide the page numbers, topic overview, and resources (activities, tests, outlines, etc.) required. An introduction to the concept is included along with questions to ask (and their answers). Activities, lessons with scripted question, ELL/ESL strategies, notes on the sidebar elements, tips for differentiating instruction based on learning styles, and vocabulary/pronunciation helps will help homeschoolers construct a well-rounded lesson. 896 pages, hardcover.
Homeschoolers Please Note: The teacher's guide includes partial reproductions of the unit mastery tests and quarter-size midterm and final mastery tests. These are intended to be printed off of the "Teacher's Resource Library" CD, which is not included in this homeschool kit. References to this Teacher's CD, as well as online elements and an audio CD, are integrated throughout the teacher's guide, but are not currently included by Pearson in this kit, nor is Pearson currently selling a homeschool kit that includes these components.
