World History

If you're looking to engage your world history students and really help them learn the subject, look no further. This complete world history curriculum is exactly what you're students need--it's hands-on and digital. It's a complete course with an organizational structure that's easy to follow. Plus, you can edit to suit your students' needs!

You might think, what’s the point of interactive notebooks?

The cutting, the gluing, the coloring.

Isn’t it a waste of time?

I know a lot of teachers who feel this way. Especially in the age of 1:1 and distance learning.

But there’s something visceral about the cutting, gluing, and coloring that sticks with students. It engages them and they remember the material.

Plus, it’s an organizational structure for an entire course that creates a really well-organized study guide. Many of your students struggle with executive-functioning (you know, those soft skills of organization, memory, problem-solving, emotional control, and focus). Having a fully realized course that’s organized, consistent, and engaging really helps with this.

I designed a world history curriculum of interactive notebooks for you. Each comes with daily lesson plans and tons of activities and assessment. They’re common core aligned for grades 6-12 and work great with advanced middle-schoolers and general high-schoolers.

I’ve been working hard to update them so that they’re editable–that way you can tweak them to your classroom needs, but they’re also ready for you to easily modify for distance learning. I have a tutorial for you about how to do this, just right click here to open it in a new tab.

As an added bonus, I’ve also added the growing bundle of digital resources to the complete curriculum, so if you have it already, just go back to the folder, and access the digital resources from there! I’ll be adding more digital resources periodically.
