Bring History Alive! A Sourcebook for Teaching World History.
Dunn, Ross E., Ed.; Vigilante, David, Ed.
This resource manual was created by teachers for teachers who wish to engage in an inquiry-based approach to historical knowledge and historical understanding. The teaching examples are offered as sample activities and are not considered to be a complete curriculum. The teaching examples are organized by grade level and era and are supplemented by essays of two kinds. In Part I the essays explore ways to approach, organize, and conceptualize the teaching of world history with alternative teaching methods. In Part II, essays introduce each of the nine eras of world history and dwell on a particular theme or approach relevant to the era. The nine eras are borrowed from the National Standards for World History and encompass the periodization of history. (EH)
