'I Heart World History' is an original textbook which is written for 9th-11th graders. The book approaches history with humor and kid-friendly language, as it was written by an ACTUAL TEACHER who has contact with REAL HUMAN 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. There are two versions of the text available: a regular version suitable for on-level and Honors or pre-AP students and a sheltered version suitable for English Language Learners (ESL) and modified or resource students.
'I Heart World History' has a fully aligned curriculum available, including reading guides, power points, primary source activities, writing activities, enrichment activities, and quiz and test banks. The curriculum includes adaptations for different student achievement levels as well: modified, on-level, and pre-AP. It has been classroom tested by six different 10th grade teachers at a Texas high school.
