Short Lessons in World History
In an appealing high-interest/easy-reading format, this book parallels standard world history textbooks. Main sections of the first half of the book cover early civilizations, Greece and Rome, the Middle Ages, the growth of European power, and the Industrial Revolution; the second half of the book focuses in unusual depth on the 19th and 20th centuries. Each unit features an illustrated overview of an historical period with boldface vocabulary words, "Think About It" questions, a one-page biography of a notable figure, at least one map, a "puzzle quiz," and a review quiz.
