‘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.
Before purchasing this product: Please also download and read over the freeI Heart History Curriculum Information and Samples in order to be aware of how the curriculum was designed to work, how unit folders are organized, and what is and is not included in each unit. These products low-prep units in that all handouts are ready-to-print and all power points are ready-to-present with no editing from you, that they include a calendar of recommended pacing, and that all activities that are not explained in the freeI Heart History Curriculum Information and Samples document include teacher instructions; however, I cannot claim that they are 'no-prep' as I believe that all lessons require some preparation on the teacher's part in order to adapt to the teacher's individual style and the students' needs. Activities do not include scripts or 'university-style' lesson plans with objectives, standards, warm-ups, etc. planned out for each day.
