Teaching World History

We 1:00PM - 3:25PM / 312 Cathedral of Learning / CRN 29675

This is a hands-on course providing training for the teaching of world history surveys. Throughout the course, students will be presented with the contents of an existing world history survey and all types of available resources for the teaching of world history (synthetic books, textbooks, major thesis, themes in world history, primary sources, visual sources, and the internet). Simultaneously, an ongoing dialogue between the existing survey, the analysis of the teaching resources, and the students’ ideas would result in the design and presentation of world history classes by each student on a weekly basis. By the end of the course, these classes will add up to a full-fledged new world history surveys tailored by the understandings of the field, strengths, and preferences of each student. History and education students are warmly welcome to join this practical teaching workshop.
