Independent study

Note

History Odyssey study guides were written without the need for teacher guides 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). However, due to the complexity of the course and customer demand, Pandia Press created Modern Times Level Two Teacher Guide.
