*We are currently revising and updating the high school level of this study. As we just did with the intermediate level, we are replacing out of print books, rewriting the study notes, and adding many features that will help the teacher and student gain more enjoyment from learning about this incredible time period. We plan to have a new high school Teacher Guide and pack available the summer of 2019 for those planning on beginning it for the 2019-2020 school year. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Featuring separate notes for intermediate (5th-8th grade) and high school level students, this guide leads you through the fascinating civilizations of ancient Sumeria, Egypt, Greece and Rome. Biblical history is combined with the writings of Shakespeare, Henryk Sienkiewicz, Padraic Colum, Genevieve Foster and others. Detailed study notes, vocabulary lists, maps, lesson plans and tests with answer keys all combine to make this an exciting study that reveals the relevancy of the ancient world to ours today!
Includes references, a listing of relevant websites, vocabulary lists, historical notes, comprehension questions and answer key, and much more. Everything you need to teach ancient history using the best literature available! The Intermediate section of the teacher guide contains 71 lessons (complete 2-3 per week) and the Senior High section contains 91 lessons (complete 3 per week).
