Spanning the time period from 750 CE to the present day, Inquiry-Based Lessons in World History (Vol. 2) focuses on creating global connections between people and places using primary sources in standards-based lessons. With sections on the world in transition, the era of revolutions, imperialism and global war, and the modern world, this book provides teachers with inquiry-based, ready-to-use lessons that can be adapted to any classroom and that encourage students to take part in the learning process by reading and thinking like historians. Each section contains chapters that correspond to the scope and sequence of most world history textbooks. Each inquiry lesson begins with an essential question and connections to content and literacy standards, followed by primary source excerpts or links to those sources. Lessons include step-by-step directions, incorporate a variety of literacy strategies, and require students to make a hypothesis using evidence from the texts they have read.

Every social studies teacher needs this resource!
As both a social studies teacher and gifted and talented coordinator, Inquiry-Based Lessons in World History is an incredible resource for teachers! The books are great for both the first year teacher and the veteran teacher because there are step-by-step lessons which you can use in their entirety or you can pick and choose the aspects of the lesson that work best for your teaching style. I personally love the lesson hooks and the variety of inquiry-based strategies that are provided for each lesson. As a gifted and talented coordinator, I would recommend this for elementary teachers looking for above-level text and a way to challenge your advanced learners. Don’t be fooled by the label “Grades 7-10” since these books can be easily used by grades 6th through 12th. I’m so excited about this resource and can’t wait for the upcoming school year to implement these lessons in my classroom.

Inquiry-Based Lessons In World History Volume 2
I have been teaching high school for fifteen years, and I am happy to report that the authors of this book have put together practical and age appropriate lessons. There is nothing "elementary" about this book.  I love the way the authors have put together primary sources in a way that is useful and convenient to the classroom teacher.  This book even comes with graphic organizers for your students to use while interacting with the primary source documents.  Some of these lessons could be used in U.S. History as well.  For example, there is a gallery walk with the Powhatan Indians that I intend to share with my friend who teaches early U.S. History.  I recommend this book to anyone who is looking to incorporate more literacy strategies into their classroom.  This is exactly what I have been looking for!
