World History Connected | Vol. 3 No. 1 | David Christian: What's the Use of "Big History?" - 9 views

  •  
    Our new National Curriculum takes a world history approach, which is a new direction for history in my State. This is an interesting argument for big-picture, as opposed to civilisational or thematic, approaches to conceptualising history.

    A teacher of AP World History, Bill Strickland, has kindly allowed people access to this site. The enrolment key is 'monty'. I got this through the AP World History Teachers group on Google Groups.

World History Connected: EJournal of Learning and Teaching - 5 views

  •  
    Has articles and some source material links related to World History. The site (run out of University of Illinois, by the looks) has a strong focus on 'big history.' I hadn't encountered this term before; it seems to mean looking at history not through civilisations but rather periods or regions. If that description is wrong and someone could provide more accuracy on 'big history' that would be cool.

    The journal focuses on the New World History (looking at the world at a global scale across time) as opposed to the one civilization at a time approach. See the World History AP course description for an example of what this means:

    David, as an Australian you are at Ground Zero of Big History since its leader is an Australian = David Christian.
    Christian's _Maps of Time: An Introduction to Big History_ is the one book to read on the subject.
    This article well covers it: http://www.historycooperative.org/journals/whc/3.1/christian.html

    Google David Christian, Big History for more

    Again, the journal is not specifically focused on Big History but on the New World History, but it did have one issue on Big History as its forum: http://worldhistoryconnected.press.illinois.edu/6.3/

    More links than you probably want here about Big History:
    http://worldhistoryconnected.press.illinois.edu/6.3/maunu2.html

    This month's forum is on Latin America.
    Other forums range the gamut of world history.

Unit 1 (AP World History) - 17 views

    Good example of using an LMS (Learning Management System [cool jargon to know!]) for a class. My school uses Moodle and BlackBoard is popular at Australian universities. I organise mine by lesson and direct the students to go through the materials before the lesson, usually podcasts, PowerPoints, links to a source site, etc, depending on what materials I'm using for the lesson. After the lesson I put the podcast of it up there for the students to use for revision, along with the notes they've taken during that lesson. Much more effective than a textbook, I reckon!
