Prentice Hall’s World History program brings history ot life, shows how history matters and motivates students to succeed. This highly acclaimed program offers a highly visual, engaging current events update providing a snapshot of significant events such as the 2012 national elections and events in the Middle East, that have the potential to shape the national and international landscapes.
The Concept Connector strand within the program inspires students to apply their knowledge of history to current events. By learning about world history, your students will develop the knowledge needed to understand their world today and tomorrow.
Help students make meaningful, personal connections to the content. Built around the Understanding by Design® framework for curriculum, assessment and learning, World History uses scaffolded Essential Questions to introduce new concepts, stimulate conversations, and inspire students to go beyond the facts and connect what they are learning to the larger world around them.
Experience comes from doing and active learning. With Pearson’s Social Studies programs, students will have multiple pathways to learning that take advantage of 21st Century skills and technologies. Follow the links below to see some examples for yourself.
Understanding is about transferring learning into action. Today’s high-stakes and End-of-Course assessments, State Standards, and Common Core Standards ask students move beyond simply memorizing facts, dates, and places to applying their learning to new content, new ideas and to their own lives. Check out the links below for some examples of how we help you do this.
