Who Are the Turks? A Manual for Teachers.
McCarthy, Justin; McCarthy, Carolyn
Teaching about Turkey is currently a priority in world and global history courses. There has been a re-examination of this region, a re-emphasis on the contribution of the peoples of the area to history, and a re-evaluation of the role of the Turks not only in Turkish history but also in Central Asia, Western China, Eastern Europe, and Russia. The Turks cannot be relegated to the perimeter of history, particularly in the current political climate. The material in this guide is developed with a humanities perspective. The guide is divided into two main parts: (1) history and related social disciplines; and (2) art and literature. Each part contains lessons that include a lesson plan with instructor notes, key concepts for the material, vocabulary terms, and suggestions for strategies for teaching and for projects, homework readings, and worksheets to photocopy as handouts for students. Some lessons in the guide also include maps and full-page graphics for copying and distributing to students. Additional material is contained in the appendices. (BT)
