The book makes use of the latest educational research,including the recommendations of the National Research Council in How People Learn and of Robert Marzano in Classroom Instruction that Works.

A special opening unit presents test-taking strategies students need to perform well on the new End-of-Course test. Students learn how to read maps, tables, graphs and diagrams. Students also learn how to attack each type of multiple-choice question through our unique metacognitive ¿E-R-A¿ approach: Examine The Question, Recall What You Know, and Apply What You Know to select the best answer.

Each of the TEKS is completely covered. Information is organized logically around social studies skills and methods, followed by a chronological approach to world history, incorporating history, geography, economics, and government.

Each Unit Opener serves as an advance organizer allowing students to grasp the essential structure of the entire unit.

Each chapter opens with a list of Major Ideas and a Word Wall, serving as advance organizers.

This is followed by clear and concise explanations accompanied by maps, illustrations, and graphic organizers. Each content chapter presents the major ideas of the TEKS by focusing on key concepts, facts and people.

Applying What You Have Learned and Amateur Historian sections reinforce learning and take students beyond the text.

Learning with Graphic Organizers help students who are visual learners to ¿pull it all together.¿

Study Cards at the end of each content chapter highlight essential information. Students are also encouraged to make their own cards to review and reinforce key concepts, facts, and relationships.

Each chapter ends in a Checking Your Understanding feature with both guided and independent practice. These questions are designed to mirror those questions students will find on the actual STAAR End-of-Course Test.

Each unit concludes with a Concept Map, helping students to visually organize and review each standard and to see various relationships more clearly.

A Complete Final Practice Test has the same distribution of questions and level of difficulty as the actual End-of-Course Test to help students improve their performance. Every question in the book is identified by its TEKS student expectation.

Teachers Guide and Answer key available.

Here is a 25-minute student-friendly version of our complementary video, providing a complete survey of the World History TEKS. Have your students watch it as an advance organizer or for a comprehensive review. They can watch it anytime, anywhere, just by accessing the web!
