GENERAL KNOWLEDGE READINGS: HISTORY

TUTORS' INSTRUCTIONS:

Many times we get parents asking us to expand their children's horizons by teaching them new things. We recognize that learning English means more than learning the rules of grammar and spelling. Learning English means being able to read diverse materials in this language and learning new facts, thus expanding one's general knowledge in different fields. Some of the most important things young people must learn relate to being able to recognize CONCEPTS, PEOPLE & EVENTS that are significant to human history. The following short readings will do just that: expand young learners' general knowledge and give them a broader view of human history.
