    Please note that this curriculum was originally written to use with the 4th edition of History of the World by J.M. Roberts. That book is currently on its 6th edition and while technically still useable, it does not match up with the curriculum well. The publisher has put the History Odyssey curriculum for this level out of print until it is rewritten at a later date for a newer edition of History of the World. Please note that our resources include the 6th edition, as that is the only one that is in print at this time.

    This beautifully designed timeline package is designed to accompany the History Odyssey program and includes four timelines: Ancients (6000 BCE - AD 500), Middle Ages (AD 500 - 1600), Early Modern (AD 1600 - 1850) and Modern Times (AD 1850 - Present Day). Although timelines are blank for the student to record events, they are printed in full-color and feature small graphics sprinkled here and there. To keep entries organized, each timeline is divided into seven category sections including: Men & Women, Inventions & Discoveries, Wars & Conflicts, Eras & Dynasties, Art & Literature, General Events, and Treaties/Agreements. Each timeline is five feet in length, features evenly spaced date lines, and can be displayed on a wall or hole-punched and placed into a binder. An optional Prehistory Timeline is also available if you would like to add a segment covering 2 million BCE to 7000 BCE (item #39409) Also, the optional timeline sticker pack is still available (#42770) which features 200 black-and-white stickers of famous people and events from 6000 BCE to present day.

    This book covers it all, from the dawn of history right up to the year 2000, for all the major civilizations, all the rulers, and all the events in world history. Pages are filled with clear, interesting accounts of historical events, realistic reconstructions of scenes, and tons of incredible photographs. More than 100 charts and maps are included, allowing you to see exactly where events took place. Besides being an intriguing book to read, this is also your link to world history on the web. After reading about a subject, go online; every link leads you to a website where you can read additional information, watch video clips, play games, see photos, and use other unique website features to experience "virtually" all of world history. I was never much for history, but I wish I had this book when I was younger; these websites look really intriguing. For a study of the ancient world you can get virtual tours of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, a virtual walking tour of Rome and Athens, learn to speak Ancient Greek, write in hieroglyphics, take interactive tours of museums, explore the Valley of Kings in Egypt and learn about the pharaohs buried there and their tombs through photos and panoramic movies, view profiles of famous Romans and Greeks, explore a clickable Roman marketplace, and loads more. Some sights are interactive, where you can, for example, reenact the Battle of Hastings, and some are treasure troves of information, maps, timelines, and diagrams.

    Note: The first 100 or so pages of the book discuss the "Prehistoric World" (starting 4,550 million years ago with the Big Bang and proceeding to 12,000 years ago when the last ice age came to an end). This section outlines evolution and likely contains objectionable material. However, the rest of the sections (Ancient World, Medieval World, Last 500 Years) are more factual and make up for the first. A colorful, captivating book. 416 pages. Stephanie

    V.M. Hillyer, the first headmaster of Calvert School, spent many of his school years studying only American history. Believing that studying world history would broaden children's horizons and give them a better understanding of the world and history in general, he set about to write an understandable and comprehensive world history children could enjoy. A Child's History of the World functions to familiarize young children with some of the countless historical events and people of significance while reading like a good story. While many of the topics touched upon may not be the most important in overall world history, they are the most important that can be understood by a child. The subjects are covered in chronological order, from the beginning of the world (presented from a vague but secular viewpoint) through the end of the Cold War. This gives the child a linear view of world history that allows for the details to be filled in later. A Child's History of the World is a basal (basic, fundamental) reader and is not intended to be used as a supplementary reader. Recently revised, copyright 1997. 440 pgs, hc. 7.25" x 9.5". ~ Enh

    We looked at several different alternatives before selecting this volume as a basic world history reference book. As with any secular product, we contend with the "dating" problems (the book dates the beginning of history at 40,000 B.C.), and evolutionary references. However, the book is an excellent reference with many outstanding features:

    • It's all in one book (491 pgs) making it a handy reference for studies of any and all time periods.
    • The paper is nice and thick, designed to tolerate years of "wear and tear".
    • Chronologically-arranged and cross- referenced articles.
    • Over 2000 colorful illustrations, including photographs and charts as well as annotated maps.
    • A handy reference section at the back of the book that has lists of national leaders throughout history; wars; and explorations/discoveries.
    • The comprehensive indexing makes it easy to quickly find the information or related articles you need.

    This book replaced the old Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World a number of years ago. Although similar, there are some differences in this new book. Curriculums that refer to the original book may not correspond exactly to the replacement version. We think this will be a volume you will use again and again, not just for world history studies, but for unit studies of all kinds.

    Hendrik William Van Loon takes us through the entire history of mankind in this classic, winner of the first John Newberry Medal. Updated by John Merriman to include the important events of the last two decades, our story is written as one long, engaging adventure. From the very origins of man through the holy city of Babylon, to Carthage, the First Crusade, to the explorations of Columbus and Magellan, the American Revolution, to the time of Napoleon and up to the democracy movement in China and recent events; mankind's wars, religions, inventions, ideas, and entire work is captured in warm, enlightening text and simple illustrations. This book offers an easily read and enjoyed picture of history, and is one I shall return to when the catalog is at the printer. ~ Steph

    Used as a resource for the upper levels of the History Odyssey program, this book from a secular publisher presents a truly global and comprehensive world history tracing the development of different civilizations through the ages from what is known as "pre-history" through the entrance into the twenty-first century. And all in a mere 1225 pages (hb)! Highly readable, interspersed with historical maps, this newly revised work provides a great narrative of the human species. ~ Janice

    Many great people and many great times throughout the history of the world have been remembered through speeches. It's easy to think of some of these in the modern times – Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream," Richard Nixon's speech to astronauts on the moon, John F. Kennedy's inaugural address, and Winston Churchill's "Their Finest Hour," for example. Perhaps not so easy to name are some of those speeches that have held their place in time throughout the centuries – such speeches as Julius Caesar's "On the Treatment of the Conspirators," Socrates on his condemnation and death, Danton's "To Dare Again, Ever to Dare!" and Martin Luther before the Diet of Worms. Divided into seven parts, the 292 speeches in this book are drawn from: Earlier Times (Ancient Greece and Rome, Great Britain and Ireland, the early United States, Canada, South America, South Africa, India, and China), Recent Times (US domestic affairs, world affairs and WWII, and US affairs and WWII), Modern Times (US government, international affairs, and the United Nations), Informal Speeches (of the last two centuries), Important Speeches of the Sixties, Speeches by Black Americans, and Speeches from the period 1974 – 1997. From Pericles and Isocrates to Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Ronald Reagan, and the Earl of Spencer, these speeches are a great resource for history, inspiration, quotations, and much more. Speeches are indexed by topic, by nationality, and by speaker for ease of reference. ~ Zach

    This edition, translated by Robert Fitzgerald translation is my personal favorite, perhaps because it is the first I read, or maybe because the poetry seems to flow better than other translations. It also includes some nice "extras" like an introduction that explains many aspects of the poem, a map, a glossary of names and places, and an intriguing postscript about the story and translation. 516 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
