Product Description

MyWorld History will take middle-school students stage-by-stage through the great events, civilizations, and people of this world. Covering the origins of humanity, Ancient Near East, Ancient India & China, Greece, Rome, Islamic Civilization, African and Asian civilization, the Americas, Europe in the Middle Ages, the rise of Europe, the Early Modern and Modern World, students will discover the grand scope of history. The student text and journal are tied together by the Understanding by Design (UbD) model, which emphasizes "enduring understanding and transfer of learning" for long-term retention and applicability.

Each chapter in the student text is introduced with an "Essential Question," interesting "MyStory" passage, and a timeline to put the era in perspective. The chapter is divided into sections that center upon specific concepts; each section includes "key ideas" and "key terms," plenty of photographs, highlighted important terms, maps with map skill questions, "reading check" questions, and charts. Each section concludes with assessment questions on the key terms & ideas, critical thinking questions, and the essential question. Chapter assessments include comprehensive questions on the key terms/ideas, critical thinking questions, a visual-analysis question, 21st learning internet-based question or activity, a chapter activity, and document-based questions. 1084 pages, hardcover.

The accompanying Student Journal is organized by chapter and section to easily correlate activities and worksheets. Worksheets, writing exercises, graphic organizers, chapter support, and a two-page writing exercises are included. The "Essential Question" preview asks students to find ways to relate the issues and principles of the question to their own lives, while the "connect to the chapter" page invites students to chart predictions on how the essential question relates to the countries in the chapter. "Word Wise" exercises emphasize vocabulary through games, word maps, and crossword puzzles. "Take Notes" graphic organizers will help students synthesize concepts and create a visual study guide. The "Essential Question Writers Workshop" provides an end-of-chapter opportunity to show understanding of the chapter, and "sum it up" activities provide map exercises and timeline activities. 400 pages, softcover.

The student journal answer key provides suggestions for assessment, guidance for working with essential questions, and answers for all student journal activities. 110 pages, newspaper print.

This course includes 36-40 weeks of material. Middle School, Grades 7 or 8.

    I love the quality of the book and the Student Journal is a real help in daily memory support. The bundle has the answer booklet with it and we have had some good discussions about the essay type answers. I would like to see an easy online interactive site for the kids to go with it, but overall a good buy for us. We will most likely get half of it done this year and do the other half next year.

    This book has a lot of information in it and is well organized. The student journal makes it easy to follow the chapter and complete the assignment's which are not long. The cd that comes with the set brings the story alive. In order to teach the material you will have to buy a second bundle for yourself and the answer key unless you want to share with your child. This is the biggest problem that I have. It would be nice if they would combine the answer key with the journal activities for a proper teacher's manual. Overall I think it is a good product and will use it again for 8th grade, covering the last six units of the book.
