* Early Modern Level two is a comprehensive course that is appropriate for both middle school and high school students with little modification.

From the Stuart Dynasty to Lewis and Clark, Early Modern level two is a complete one-year curriculum guide that combines history with literature, world geography, and writing activities. Students study events from early modern history, a time of nationalism and revolution: scientific, agricultural, industrial, French, and American. It was also a time of civil war and rebellion: English, Spanish, Scottish, Russian, and American. And it was a time of advancement and expansion: the Age of Reason, Galileo, Lewis and Clark, East India Trading Company, Mercantilism, and the Enlightenment. This comprehensive course covers success and failures of civilizations in Early Modern history from all parts of the world.

Early Modern level two is a student guide that provides step by step lessons to teach world history from 1600 to 1850. Level 2 History Odyssey guides are written to be used independently by students with the parent/teacher assisting when necessary with lessons and assessing the student’s completed work. Early Modern level two does not require an answer key due to the subjectivity of the assignments that encourage critical thinking (i.e. there is rarely any one correct answer).  Answer keys to map work are found in the main spine (The Kingfisher History Encyclopedia). A rubric is provided to assist in grading essay writing.

Literature and writing instructions and assignments found in the course include advanced outlining of history readings, attribution of sources, How to Write a Biography, How to Write an Essay, persuasive writing, creating a storyboard, literary analysis, creating a character web, and identifying elements of an epic.

Critical thinking with history studies found in this course include identifying connections and cause/effect relationships; evaluating the validity and type of history sources; timeline analysis; detailed examination of revolutions, wars, and conflicts; and identifying connections between geography and history through extensive map work.

This guide includes:

  • 21 early modern history blackline maps
  • Worksheets
  • Recommended resource list
  • 89 detailed lessons covering:
    • Literature
