US and World Modern History Study Guide, we wanted to keep you up-to-date and give some details about the study.This one year adventure will cover 1850 to 2002 and while the book list will feature some of the same titles we had in our previous study, it will also include seven brand-new titles like best-sellers Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, and A History of the Twentieth Century by Martin Gilbert. Gilbert's work will provide a spine for the course as it covers the most dense period, 1900-1999, and will provide much-needed background information on the inevitable gaps between the literature.
As you all know we are completely rewriting this high school study guide. One of the suggestions we heard
frequently concerning the old guide was the lack of study notes and corresponding answer key for several of the books. We heard you loud and clear! This new edition features comprehensive study notes and discussion questions, vocabulary, web links, and answer key for each title. Also, the new study is truly "modern" as it goes far beyond the Vietnam War, where the old one ended. By popular demand we have also included a literary analysis section for a handful of the classic literature choices which will assist students to learn and understand the literary devices used by renowned authors like Harper Lee, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Stephen Crane, and others.
We have so enjoyed creating this study. It is an amazing time period and we believe this course represents it well. If you are looking for a comprehensive history and literature study on the modern time period we wholeheartedly believe this is the best literature-based study you will find.
Thank you for your interest and patience!
