This program helps students not only learn the essential facts and events of world history, but also understand the reasons behind these events. The program explores broad concepts of world history by providing an Essential Question that is the framework for each interactive lesson. The lessons incorporate a variety of exercises and materials, as well as critical thinking skills, writing, vocabulary, and in-depth comprehension. A Quick Study Guide is provided at the end of each chapter to help students master the essential concepts.
The Set includes the Student Text, Student Journal, Teacher’s Edition, and Parent Guide.

The Student Textbooks in this series that Pearson Learning has released to Homeschoolers contains online supplemental information and activities scattered throughout the textbook. To date, Pearson has not figured out how they are going to release the access codes in a way that is feasible for the homeschooling market. We have opted to still carry this series since the online resources are supplemental and the course content is contained in the Homeschool Bundle you receive.
