Global history approach
True global coverage of world history encourages students
to recognize historical patterns and to think critically about
pictorial evidence. Chapters highlight characteristics of the
major civilizations, and students focus on historical patterns of
trade and exchange within and among major societies.
• Provides a Pedagogical Framework Learning Objective
questions have been added to each chapter to highlight
central themes and ideas.
• Focuses on Critical Thinking Chapter-ending Critical Thinking
Questions reinforce important concepts and serve as essay
or class discussion topics. Thinking Historically analytical
essays relate to the chapter but extend across chronological
and geographical boundaries. Critical thinking questions at
the end of each essay prompt the reader to consider the farreaching
implications of historical developments.
• Helps Readers Visualize History Visualizing the Past boxes
support visual literacy. Readers learn how to read and
analyze graphic material such as maps, charts, and graphs.
Part-opening and chapter-opening timelines help readers
place history in context
