HIS Story of the 20th Century Middle School Workbook accompanies HIS Story of the 20th Century.

This workbook was created to go along with HIS Story of the 20th Century, a world history textbook that covers the 20th Century decade by decade.

Created for middle school students this workbook includes:
Timeline Pages
Timeline Figures 
Comprehension Questions for each Chapter
Writing Assignments
Map Work

History Labs (like Splatter Painting, Skyscrapers, Sock Hop)

If you read the textbook and complete the workbook, you will have completed a middle school world history course.

At the beginning of this workbook are timeline pages for each student to fill with timeline figures (included in this workbook) little by little throughout the year.

The workbook is also divided decade by decade with the same section title pages as you find in HIS Story of the 20th Century.

At the beginning of every decade section, you will find a list of movies set in that section. The whole family should choose one to watch while students work on their timeline by cutting out the timeline figures and gluing them to the timeline pages. The dates for each timeline figure are in the textbook at the beginning of each decade section.

Students read the pages in HIS Story of the 20th Century before beginning each chapter.

At the beginning of every chapter are questions that require the high school student to remember what they learned and explain in with several sentences or a couple of paragraphs. In addition, some sections have true and false questions.

Assorted assignments follow. Each chapter is different. Every decade has its own unique writing assignment and living books.

History Labs include: radio shows, learning the Charleston, making your own backyard mini golf course, setting up your own Gran Prix, tie-dye, map work, family trees, creating an airline, designing an airport, interviewing someone from a communist country, exploring Route 66, playing sports, and designing your own amusement park.

Please listen to music from each decade. Consider dressing up and making popular dishes from the decade too—it just makes learning more fun!

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
