Using Primary Sources in World History

Course Section Description:

Primary sources are the “stuff” of history, the evidence that historians use to develop narratives and explanations of past events. Through multimedia resources from Annenberg Learner, engage with a range of sources from around the globe. Consider historians’ reflections on their use of such evidence to gain insight into how primary sources can be used in world history classrooms, as well as how to handle the challenges of engaging students with source material.

Note: This is a self-paced course accessible for one year after enrollment, and not eligible for graduate credit.
