My World Geography Grades 7-8 Bundle

 Please Note: This item no longer includes materials on DVD/CD-Rom. These kit components are now accessed online via an access code that will be sent to you along with your shipment.

MyWorld Geography will take middle-school students on a continent-by-continent tour. Covering the earth itself, climates and ecosystems, human-environment interaction, economics, population, and other basic concepts in the introductory "core concepts handbook," students will then use these lenses to look at major region's modern and historical geographical history. The student text and journal are tied together by the Understanding by Design (UbD) model, which emphasizes "enduring understanding and transfer of learning" for long-term retention and applicability. Examining the culture, people, history and physical geography of the world, this social studies course will help provide students with a global perspective.

Each chapter in the Student Edition Textbook is introduced with an "Essential Question," interesting "MyStory" passage, and a map to put the region in perspective. The chapter is divided into sections that center upon specific concepts; each section includes "key ideas" and "key terms," plenty of photographs, highlighted important terms, maps with map skill questions, "reading check" questions, and charts. Each section concludes with assessment questions on the key terms & ideas, critical thinking questions, and the essential question. Chapter assessments include comprehensive questions on the key terms/ideas, critical thinking questions, map-skills questions, 21st learning internet-based question or activity, and document-based questions. 944 pages, hardcover.

The accompanying Student Journal is organized by chapter and section to easily correlate activities and worksheets. Worksheets, writing exercises, graphic organizers, chapter support, and a two-page writing exercises are included. The "Essential Question" preview asks students to find ways to relate the issues and principles of the question to their own lives, while the "connect to MyStory" page invites students to chart predictions on how the essential question relates to the countries in the chapter. "Word Wise" exercises emphasize vocabulary through games, word maps, and crossword puzzles. "Take Notes" graphic organizers will help students synthesize concepts and create a visual study guide. The "Essential Question Writers Workshop" provides an end-of-chapter opportunity to show understanding of the chapter. 303 pages, softcover.

The Student Journal Answer Key provides suggestions for assessment, guidance for working with essential questions, and answers for all student journal activities. 87+ pages, newspaper print.

The myStory DVD contains audiovisual presentations to enhance the course content (for example, the History course DVD has 33 engaging stories featuring historical characters from different eras).

The Teacher's Resource Library DVD-ROM contains a variety of teaching materials, including "Hip Hop History," an audio review, GIS maps, and lecture notes. All six components are only available in the bundle and are not separately; an exception is made for the Workbook/Student Journal.

Colorful and inviting, full of pictures and illustrations, maps and charts these courses aim to engage students more fully than a traditional textbook and they do just that.
