I tested the instructions on a person who is notorious for being confused by computers and they worked fine.)

‘I Heart World History’ is an original textbook which is written for 9th-12th graders. The book approaches history with humor and kid-friendly language, as it was written by an ACTUAL TEACHER who has contact with LIVING CHILDREN on a daily basis! My goal in writing this book was to create a text that students would actually want to read, which explained concepts in ways they could understand, without 'dumbing down' the information. A 'regular' version of the text suitable for on-level and Honors or pre-AP students is available, in addition to a sheltered version of the text suitable for modified or resource students and English Language Learners.

The full ‘I Heart World History’ curriculum is student-centered, and appeals to visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners. It has been classroom tested with six different teachers who taught pre-AP, on-level, modified, and ESL 10th graders in a Texas high school. It includes adaptations for different student achievement levels as well: modified, on-level, and pre-AP.

To learn more about the text and curriculum, please download this free document. You can also download the entire Unit 1 Curriculum Bundle for free in order to get an idea of the structure of the curriculum and the overall quality of the work.

Chapter 2 of ‘I Heart World History’ covers the following time periods: Greek city-states, Alexander’s Empire, Roman Republic, Roman Empire, Qin and Han China, and Maurya and Gupta India. It has been designed to fulfill the latest Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) requirements for 10th grade World History.

Keywords: Ajanta Caves, Alexander the Great, Allegory of the Cave, aqueducts, Archimedes, Aristophanes, Aristotle, Asoka, Athens, Augustus Caesar, Buddhism, Chandragupta Maurya, Christianity, democracy, due process, empire, engineering, Eratosthenes, Euclid, fall of Roman Empire, forum, Four Noble Truths, Great Wall, Greco-Roman civilization, Hellenism, Herodotus, Homer, Julius Caesar, Laws of the Twelve Tables, legions, martyrs, messiah, patricians, Pax Romana, Pericles, Persian Wars, Plato, plebeians, polis, Punic Wars, Pythagoras, republic, Roman roads, Senate, Shi Huangdi, Sik Road, Socrates, Sophocles, Sparta, Srigupta, stupas, Thucydides, veto, Virgil.

I've edited the product so that there are PDF versions of every file, which should solve the layout / printing problems you are having.

If that doesn't work, please email me at carrifloyd@gmail.com and let me know which files were problematic and I'll send them to you via email, or I can arrange for a refund. Sorry you are having trouble!

I really can't rate this because the link does not work. Right now I have what appears to be a wasted chunk of change.

I'm sorry you're having trouble accessing the files. I've just checked the link in the file, and it's working. You might need to set up a Dropbox account before using the link. If you haven't done that, just go to dropbox.com and set up an account (it's free). Then, once you're logged in, the link should work.

If that doesn't work, please send me an email at carriefloyd@gmail.com and I'll make sure you get the files you paid for or a complete refund. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, and hope that we'll be able to get it working for you!

This is a good unit. I taught summer school and used it as a review tool. I liked most of it. There were a few generalizations and it could be more up-to-date, but I highly recommend it. My summer school students were low or late to liking reading. Using this unit allowed them to highlight, write notations, and draw images for memory tools. Students liked it.
On  July 11, 2013I Heart History answered:
I'm sorry you felt that some areas were generalized or inaccurate... could you be a little more specific about what was problematic so I can fix any errors?

Thanks!

Product Questions & Answers

On  August 19, 2013Michael Matera (TpT Seller) asked:
Really interested in your I heart History text book. I am curious if you think it would be ok for 6th graders to read? Are some of the lessons and assignments ok for 6th graders. I know you put it as a highschool text but there are not many resources for middle school world history. This could be the ticket for me.

On  August 19, 2013I Heart History answered:
I have never taught sixth grade, so I am not sure what they are capable of reading. (Also secondary certification people NEVER get any formal training on how kids read, which I think is kinda silly since they still have to read for us!) The reading level of the textbook usually measures as 10th-11th grade when I put the text into some kind of reading level calculator program. There are Sheltered Chapters for units 1-8 included in the curriculum bundles. These were designed with shorter sentences and vocabulary support for modified students or ELLs, but they might work for 6th graders. I would say download the free bundle for Ch 1 and use the Sheltered chapter and see how it works before you order any of the other bundles.

Good luck!
