Bridging World History: A Special Collection from the Annenberg Foundation

Course Section Description:

Delve into world history and explore global patterns through time, seeing history as an integrated whole. Two broad themes can be applied to view the people and events of world history: integration (how the processes of world history have drawn peoples of the world together) and difference (how the patterns of world history also reveal the diversity of the human experience). Explore over 1000 primary source documents, artifacts, and expert videos and develop historical thinking skills as you gain a global perspective on the past. Develop essential questions and a framework based on your curriculum for your exploration and work through this inquiry-based course. Develop an instructional unit to implement with students that develops their historical thinking skills and brings the past to life in your classroom.

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.
