This Study and Teaching Guide, designed for use by both parents and teachers, provides a full curriculum with study questions and answers, critical thinking assignments, essay topics, instructor rubrics, and test forms. Explanations for answers and teaching tips are also included. 

Contains Instructor Section (the first half of the book) and perforated Student Pages (in the second half). 

The Study and Teaching Guide, written by historian and teacher Julia Kaziewicz in cooperation with Susan Wise Bauer, makes The History of the Ancient World even more accessible to educators and parents alike.

Because in 30 years your high-schooler won’t remember who asked whom to the prom, but she WILL remember who Hammurabi was.

(We can assert with confidence that she really won’t remember. There are several reasons for this. The first has to do with complex neurochemical deterioration in the brain as people age, but we don’t know the details because we spent Anatomy Class wondering who would ask whom to the prom. The second has to do with the fleeting nature of youthful infatuations, though, on a cosmic scale, all of life is fleeting, and one day even the Sun itself will be but a fading memory, and we tend to think about these things after we watch Nova and before we’ve had our coffee. The third reason is that your high-schooler is homeschooled and her brother didn’t accept her prom invitation.)

Note: the map exercises require tracing the maps from The History of the Ancient World. If your copy of that book is in Kindle format, and you plan to do the map exercises, you’ll want to get our PDF pack of all the maps used in this Study Guide.

What others are saying

  1. One person found this helpful

    Question

    Who was the troll that wrote this product review? LOL I actually wanted to know more about the product.

  2. Question

    Do you consider this series, with the study guides to be a high school credit history course/courses? When will the Modern times be published?

    • Rhonda: Yes, when used with the study guides, this series would certainly be eligible for a High School credit in World History or Ancient History/Civilizations.
      We do not have a projected publication date for future volumes.

  3. Question

    I really like this! Are all three books together considered one credit of high school ancient or world history? Will you be making an audio for the Renaissance and Ancient books also?

    • The decision about making further audio books is up to W.W. Norton & Co., the publishers of these books.
      Each of these books (studied for a year, in conjunction with the study guide) could be a history credit: Ancient Civilizations, World History, Geography, Western Civilization, etc.

  4. Question

    Where are the test forms? I have been using this book since September and thought a test may pop up between chapters, but now I have looked thoroughly and do not see any. I am not sure how to grade without essays and tests embedded into the study guide. Any ideas? It says in the description essay ideas, test forms, and rubrics and I have none of that, just the daily answers to the parts 1,2,and 3 and the student part. Help!

    • The wording in the description wasn’t as clear as it should have been. We apologize if this caused confusion.

      After the introductory “How to use this Study Guide” pages, the first half of the book (pages 5 through 338) is the Instructor Section. This section contains not only the questions for the student, but also the answers to every question (answers are in bold print). The answers are accompanied by the page number and paragraph number where they would be found in “The History of the Ancient World.” That way, if the student gets stuck, the parent/teacher can direct him to the proper page where he will find the answer.
      For any essay questions (the “Critical Thinking” portion of each chapter) the instructor gets an explanation of what types of things need to be in the student’s answer (that’s what we mean when we refer to “rubrics” in our description of the book), and suggestions on how to draw the student toward a satisfactory result.

      The second half (pages 345 through 537) is the Student Section. This section contains questions, but no answers. These student pages are perforated for removal, to be used either as homework assignments, or as comprehension tests.

      If that’s not what you intended to buy, we would be happy to refund your purchase. Email [email protected] to set that up.

  5. 2 out of 5 No test forms, rubrics, writing projects as described

    While this product could fulfill an entire year of history as promised, it doesn’t. There are no tests, no rubrics, no writing assignments. The wording needs to be changed. What IS there is really good, it just needs to be expanded upon. Disappointed.

  6. Question

    Is this series designed to go well with Story of the World? I would love to keep my younger and older kids working together. Would all my kids be able to discuss similar topics together? Thank you so much!

    • Good question! Unfortunately, this series is separate from “Story of the World” and moves at a much different pace.

  7. 5 out of 5 The History of the Ancient World Study & Teaching Guide

    We love it so far! Great questions & the Critical Thinking Section is very good. My daughter loves the map work. I like the page references that go with the answers; if my daughter doesn’t get the right answer, I can quickly look it up & ask questions to jog her memory.
