Link to Online Textbook (World History 2 – Mr. Stewart)

While my class is based on materials that I have assembled and/or created myself, sometimes it’s good to have a textbook to use as a reference for study or review.

I will be sure to reference what chapter(s) attach to what we are doing in class so you have that reliable resource to complement our work in the classroom.

Happy Reading!!

World History – February 11 to 15

We will be continuing our examination of the transformation of England into a full-fledged constitutional monarchy and will tie that to the ideas of the Enlightenment, the contrast of ideas between John Locke and Thomas Hobbes, and eventually the French Revolution through the Napoleonic Era.

If everything goes according to plan, an assessment will be given in the middle of next week (February 20 or thereabouts).
