Units and subtopics are: (1) Life during Prehistoric and Early Historic Times--prehistoric times, life in early river valleys; (2) Ancient Civilizations--Greek, Roman, Mayan, Inca, Aztec, African, Indian, Chinese; (3) Life in Early Modern Europe--feudal society, Renaissance, Reformation; (4) Life in the Modern World--Western industrial society, communist country, developing nations. Each unit subtopic contains objectives, teaching strategies, learning activities, and discussion questions. Students interpret photographs, do special research projects, prepare time lines, prepare a newspaper from an early river civilization, read and discuss textbook selections, and view media. An annotated listing of teacher and student print and nonprint resources for each unit is included. (RM)
