Teaching World History: One Path through the Forest
Fisher, Eve
Social Education, v76 n1 p10-13 Jan-Feb 2012
Teaching world history presents any number of challenges. World history requires constantly shifting perspectives in order to keep students oriented in time and space while providing contemporary relevance, emphasizing themes with regularity, having a certain amount of fun, and moving at the warp speed that covering 10,000 years in 31 weeks necessitates. Daunting, isn't it? As a college teacher of world history, the author has faced challenges that are similar to those that confront world history teachers in schools. Her students are usually recent high school graduates, and her suggestions and recommendations will, she hopes, assist teachers to give their students the best possible preparation for college.
