Teaching Global History challenges prospective and beginning social studies teachers to formulate their own views about what is important to know in global history and why. It explains how to organize the curriculum around broad social studies concepts and themes and student questions about humanity, history, and the contemporary world. All chapters include lesson ideas, a sample lesson plan with activity sheets, primary source documents, and helpful charts, graphs, photographs, and maps. High school studentsAce(tm) responses are woven in throughout. Additional material corresponding to each chapter is posted online at http://people.hofstra.edu/alan_j_singer. The traditional curriculum tends to highlight the Western heritage, and to race through epochs and regions, leaving little time for an in-depth exploration of concepts and historical themes, for the evaluation of primary and secondary sources, and for students to draw their own historical conclusions. Offering an alternative to such pre-packaged textbook outlines and materials, this text is a powerful resource for promoting thoughtful reflection and debate about what the global history curriculum should be and how to teach it.Timeline of the Ancient Mediterranean World, 5000 BCa500 BC Source: Grun, B., ed. ... 4000a3500 BC Sumerians settle on the site of the future city of Babylon and develop writing on clay tablets; Copper, silver and gold ...
