These are great Critical Thinking and small group Discussion Questions that coincide with History Alive! The Medieval World and Beyond, although they will work for any junior high World History class. Included with the Critical Thinking Questions (CTQ's) are vocabulary words from the chapters (ID's) that are meant to be answered in multiple sentences to induce further classroom discussions. These are 7 basic pages to compliment the first unit (about one month). The CTQ's make great ideas for short essays or test questions as well!
