Which history spine for notetaking/outlining?

Recommended Posts

I would like to introduce notetaking and outlining as part of our history studies this year. It will be new to my rising 7th grader. He enjoys history and is a strong reader (10th grade equivalent on SAT) but it weak in writing so I'm hoping this will help him.


I'm considering:

1. Kingfisher History Encyclopedia

2. DK History of the World

3. National Geographic Almanac of World history.


I would prefer a spine that would work for notetaking and outlining. Any help appreciated!

I've only used the first one from your list, the KHE. I would not use this for writing for a 7th grader. It's so condensed it's practically an outline itself.


My upper logic stage kids use History: The Definitive Visual Guide for their spine; it works well for WTM style writing.
