Kirchner & McMichael have written a wonderful text to assist educators in preparing their lesson plans for world history. It is a great reference for new teachers and a way to breathe new life into the lessons of older educators. This work will help expand your lessons where budget restraints come into play for the educator as well.,Lewie Dunn,Adjunct Professor of History, Georgia Military College, 5/20/19
This is a phenomenal find for me. I teach seventh grade Ancient History, and I am constantly searching for ways to make the material more relevant and exciting. The topical links are important themes that are common in all cultures, like religion, government, geography, culture, art, technology and economics. By repeatedly discussing these connections among civilizations, the book can deepen learning and greatly enhance student memory and recall of the material.,Joanne Bell,MiddleWeb, 7/11/19
