2017-2018 Regular World History Online Textbook  


August 18, 2017

World History Online textbook. 

This resource can be used if you have forgotten to take you textbook home. 

Please note this is a different edition from the one we use in class. 

That being said, the page numbers may not match with the assigned

page numbers in class. (Some pages will match and some are off by

up to ten pages...)  You will need to scan the online textbook for

the content or topic that you need.  This will be important if the

assignment directs you to answer questions or look at a map on

a specific page.

Online- World History Textbook with Powerpoints  

This is the "Honors world History Textbook", but the information is very similar to the regular World History Textbook. 

The good thing about this site, is that is has the same Power-Points that a I use in class- with some slight modifications.  So in a pinch, this site is a good resource to read, look at maps, charts, vocabulary and content; along with viewing Powerpoints that you might have missed or want to review for a quiz or test.
