Jarrett Publishing’s Mastering the TEKS in World History is a supplemental test preparation program for world history available in print format. Resources provide complete coverage of the high school world history TEKS. Instruction addresses world history from the establishment of the first human civilizations through the present day with a focus on key vocabulary, important concepts (e.g., human rights), and historical figures. Learning List recently published an editorial review and alignment report for this book.
The book’s introduction provides a rationale for studying world history and an overview of resources and how to use them to master the TEKS. The first unit addresses test-taking, social studies, and problem-solving skills. Subsequent units cover world history from the development of early civilizations to the present day. Most chapters include practice questions formatted to reflect the STAAR end-of course exam in U.S. History (students will take this test in a later grade). The final chapter is a cumulative practice test. Each practice question references the specific world history TEKS assessed.
