‘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.

Chapter 7 of ‘I Heart World History’ covers the Scientific Revolution and Enlightenment. Chapter 8 covers the American and French Revolutions. [Note: coverage of the American and French Revolutions is not exhaustive. As students are frequently confused by these time periods, I gave a broad overview sprinkled with only what I considered essential ideas and events. All TEKS** are covered.]
