‘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.
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.
