Western Civilization PicturePack Collections


 Each Western Civilization PicturePack Collection covers one of fifteen major periods in the history of Western Civilization.  Each Collection contains a thorough, in-depth series of visual lessons - each one a segment of history, told in beautiful large-size images and historical captions (articles). PicturePacks are inexpensive, and allow you to order just the historical content you need.  Created in html (web-based) format,  PicturePacks run in your own Windows web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator), so the PicturePack "look and feel" is friendly and familiar, and there is no installation and minimal user instruction. PicturePacks allow independent study, but they are also resources, designed to allow you to use the rich, varied content to create presentations, handouts, student reports, and much more.  Simple, clear instructions are included. PicturePack Collections are delivered on CD.
