Modern Times level two is a student guide that provides step by step lessons to teach world history from 1850 to 2000. 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. Modern Times 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). Rubrics are provided to assist in grading essay and research paper writing.
