Teaching Ideas

Advanced Placement teachers, please go to the section AP World History .

For Middle School, more able students will be able to cope with the reading level, which is aimed primarily at older students and adults. In doing so, they will greatly benefit from the huge amount of information on offer.

Students who find reading a little more difficult will also be able to benefit, but will need some help.
