This teacher guide will take you and your high school level student from the beginnings of civilization in Mesopotamia and Sumer, on to ancient Egypt, through the wanderings of the Jews and the splitting of the Israelites into the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah, to the Yellow River and the first Emperor of China, through the Indus Valley and its incredible flourishing, to the cradle of democracy, ancient Greece, and into the Roman Empire and the birth of Christianity. This guide delves deep into the beliefs and ideas that motivated our ancestors to create, to worship, to conquer and to love. Comparative studies between the religious systems of Egypt, India, China, Greece, Rome, Israel, and the development of Christianity provide essential perspective in understanding how each culture is directly shaped by what it takes to be true. Compare how creation narratives contribute to the understanding of human value, how myth both reflects and shapes history, how story ties all of humanity together.
Hands-on activities add depth to the history while vocabulary lists, comprehension questions, research topics, and website links make this both an academically strong study and one that will engage your entire family in stimulating discussions. Our teacher guide provides the structure you want and the flexibility you need to successfully teach this complex time period.
