The Aspen World History Handbook: An Organizational Framework, Lessons, and Book Reviews for Non-Centric World History.
Brooks, George E., Ed.; Daso, Dik A., Ed.; Hitchens, Marilynn, Ed.; Roupp, Heidi, Ed.
This handbook is the product of an institute held in Aspen, Colorado in 1992. The purpose of the institute was to consider how to create a viable one year survey course in world history that did not focus only on western culture. In this book can be found a general conceptual framework for a world history course, suggested lesson plans, and literary books that can be used to enhance the historical experience of students as they reach into the lives of peoples distant, chronologically and geographically, from themselves. Rather than being a curriculum, standards, or expected outcomes, this handbook is meant to guide teachers as they go about the daily work of shaping a meaningful course for their students and may be used by teachers at all levels.
