Aspen World History Handbook II: New Research and Lesser Known Tales, Habits of Mind, Lessons and Assessments.
Hitchens, Marilynn; Roupp, Heidi
This handbook is the product of a second world history institute held in Aspen, Colorado in 1996. Intended to supplement the first handbook, this production focuses on many lesser-known areas of histories of the world that remain either unexamined, ignored, or not yet included into the story of world history. Second, habits of mind peculiar to world history had yet to be properly identified and integrated into world history scholarship and teaching. Both world history scholarship and teaching had appeared to be mired in analytical frameworks and habits of thinking more appropriate to western civilization than world history. Finally, assessment mechanisms appropriate to world history seemed lacking, especially considering debate over history standards and their assessment. This document is devoted to improve world history in the above areas. (RJC)
