Snapshots of Modern History
Just like with our previous levels, Ted, Mona, Lily, and Arthur will tour the world in modern history stopping all across the globe to explore the many political, artistic, scientific, economic, and cultural changes that create the modern world! They will tackle big topics, like communism, capitalism, feminism, human rights, and colonization, but break them into understandable and relatable pieces so your child can grasp these big ideas that influence daily life.
In order to create a truly global, inclusive history book on such a pivotal era of history, its going to take a lot of words! The estimated page count for the Modern level is around 1,000 pages. As such, this level will be split into three volumes. Volume 1 will cover history from 1850 to the eve of World War I in 1914. Volume 2 will begin with World War I and conclude in the 1950s in the aftermath of World War II and the rise of the Cold War. Volume 3 will begin the 1950s and conclude in the early 2000s.
Each volume includes 36 chapters organized into 18 sections. The chapters in each section will be on related topics, so you can easily study two chapters a week. Depending on how quickly you move through material, this level can be completed in one to three years.
