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!!
