Description

A wonderful overview of world history from the time of the Crusades to the Renaissance for children which is written in Charles Kovacs's warm and expressive style.


Including Saladin, Joan of Arc, Columbus, Magellan, Queen Elizabeth and Francis Drake, Kovacs explores the notion of cause and effect and the inter-connectedness of world events.



This is a fascinating and engaging resource for teachers and home schoolers which is used in the Steiner-Waldorf curriculum for 12-13 year olds.

Review quote

'Another excellent overview of world history, compiled from Charles Kovacs' copious lesson notes. Throughout, Kovacs is keen to convey to the reader the notion of cause and effect and the inter-relatedness of world events. Any teacher of the 12-13 age group will find this book an excellent resource.'

About Charles Kovacs

Charles Kovacs was born in Austria. He left his native country in 1938 at the time of the Anschluss and joined the British Army in East Africa. After the War, he settled in Britain, and in 1956 he took over a class at the Rudolf Steiner School in Edinburgh, where he remained a class teacher until his retirement in 1976. He died in 2001. His extensive lesson notes have been a useful and inspiring resource material for many teachers.
