Table of contents

This practical handbook is designed to help anyone who is preparing to teach a world history course - or wants to teach it better. It opens with Peter Stearns' essay "Where Did World History Come From?" and closes with Jerry Bentley's annotated bibliographic guide to the essential content knowledge for teaching world history. In between, contributors offer conceptual approaches to the subject and practical steps to design a successful course. These core chapters are written by experienced teachers who have shaped the world history courses currently taught in secondary schools and colleges across the country. They feature new approaches to the subject as well as classroom-tested practices that have markedly improved world history teaching. The book was assembled and edited by Heidi Roupp, a founding member of the World History Association, who pioneered institutes for professors and teachers developing world history courses, and compiled a similar collection for teachers in the mid-1990s.
