HOW THIS BOOK WILL HELP YOUR STUDENTS PERFORM THEIR VERY BEST ON THE NEW GLOBAL HISTORY TRANSITION REGENTS:
Students are presented with short but detailed summaries of the most important information students need to know for Grade 10 Global History.
The book is written in a student-friendly language, and is highly illustrated.
With almost 350 questions designed in the format of the new transition test in Global History.
Students get to learn, apply, and reinforce all of the major terms and concepts of Global History and Geography.
The book is arranged by chapters, covering all of the content required in Grade 10 Global History and Geography. The book is 100% aligned to the new Grade 10 curriculum.
The authors are nationally recognized experts in the field of social studies testing. They have extensive experience in writing for past regents examinations and have authored numerous other books on global history.
Introductory chapters of the book provide students with tools to learn how to approach each type of question on the new transitional regents -- multiple-choice and evidence-based questions, thematic essays, and document-based questions. The book provides a separate chapter on the essential social studies skills required by the new transitional Global History Regents.
The book spotlights the specialized vocabulary of social studies. Educational research supports the learning of content vocabulary as an explicit activity. A “word wall” helps build on prior knowledge, provides contextualized information, and exposes students to high frequency words they will encounter throughout the content chapters and on the Global History Regents.
Every content chapter contains a complete Global History Regents that fully covers the material found on the new transitional regents. This will allow your students to become familiar with the format of the new transitional regents.
A guiding principle of the book is the “chunking of information” -- breaking information into “bite-sized” pieces so that the brain can more easily “digest” the information. Complex events have been divided into smaller chunks -- making them easier to understand and absorb. “Chunking of information” has been shown to be a key metacognitive approach to learning.
Every chapter employs the latest in educational research to help your students perform their very best on the regents. The book is based on the principles of the National Research Council’s How People Learn and the methodologies of Robert Marzano’s Classroom Instruction that Works.
LEARNING IS OUR PASSPORT TO THE FUTURE
