The World's Story 2: The Middle Ages Set
Angela O’Dell’s World’s Story series uses the same fun style of her popular America’s Story series to teach junior-high students about world history. Students will learn about everything from the fall of Rome to the Renaissance in a survey that covers Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. Written from a strong Christian perspective, students will see God’s hand throughout history and learn about how this history is still relevant to their lives today.
A teacher guide provides a full-year history course with a daily schedule, worksheets, hands-on activities, and research prompts.
World’s Story 2 guides students in a trip around the world as they study history from the fall of Rome to the Renaissance. Throughout the course, students will see God’s guiding hand through history. They’ll also meet historical figures that range from St. Patrick to Charles Martel to Genghis Khan to Martin Luther, and many more. Students will also study medieval civilizations spanning the whole globe, including the Byzantines, Anglo-Saxons, Muslims, Chinese, Japanese, Mongols, Mughals, Vikings, Normans, Russians, Songhai, and Aztecs!
This curriculum has two parts: the student book and this teacher guide. Students will cover 28 chapters, 5 artist studies, and 4 reviews in this year-long history course for grades 6–8. Each chapter is arranged so that there are six days’ worth of work per chapter, though the course is completed on a normal five-day school schedule. The activity pages are an assortment of areas to write/draw/copy. There are also timeline prompts for each chapter, hands-on projects, written narration prompts, and several optional craft ideas.
