This study guide is meant correlate with my Global II Reading Guide, which is a detailed and visual graphic organizer packet spanning my units 11-20. The reading guide and study guide are meant to prepare students for my Global History quizzes, in this case for units 11-20, which are all also free on my website.
I recommend you download the reading guide, study guide, and quizzes 11-20, so that you can witness the true intended effect of my resources. By itself, this packet will be of less value to you. The fundamental purpose of this packet, the reading guide, is to boost student performance on my Regents-aligned quizzes.
*Note: - When photocopying, make the brightness setting lighter so that the images on the worksheets come out more clearly.
*Important Note: This document was created with Microsoft Word 2011. If you have an earlier version of Word, the spacing and margins on the document might cause the bottoms of the pages to not match up. This problem can be fixed with two possible solutions:
1) visually-checking the document once you purchase it and making any necessary margin adjustments on specific lines and/or pages in order to create a page-aligned packet
2) Update your version of Microsoft Office to 2011 :)
