Features and Benefits

The Pearson Advantage

  • A program built to meet the way you teach and the way your students learn

    Prentice Hall’s World History program allows you to teach the way that meets your instructional goals and the needs of your students. It provides various pathways into the content for all levels and types of learners. The program makes the textbook a “diving board” into a larger pool of content that is hands-on, digital, and customizable.

  • Prepare for High Stakes Tests

    Pearson’s World History prepares students for high-stakes and end-of-course testing through regular skills practice, a multiple informal, formal, and performance-based assessment options. Regular instruction and practice for how to take high stakes and end-of-course tests will ensure all students have the skills they need to succeed.

  • Teach students to think, not recite

    When students think about World History – how do they react? Do they see themselves as citizens of the world? Do they see themselves as vested in the world political and economic situation? In World History, our authors have created a program to help students develop an understanding of key issues that affect every generation, and prepares them to be active citizens. Each generation has struggled with the same issues – from Belief Systems, to Migration, to Human Rights. The Concept Connector features, assessment, and journal provide an Essential Question led exploration of key issues in our shared past to ensure that students see how different generations of people have dealt with these issues, and how they continue to impact our world today.
