Slavery Images - 28 views

  •  
    The approximately 1,275 images in this collection have been selected from a wide range of sources, most of them dating from the period of slavery. This collection is envisioned as a tool and a resource that can be used by teachers, researchers, students, and the general public - in brief, anyone interested in the experiences of Africans who were enslaved and transported to the Americas and the lives of their descendants in the slave societies of the New World.

1492 Exhibit Library of Congress - 16 views

  •  
    1492. Columbus. The date and the name provoke many questions related to the linking of very different parts of the world, the Western Hemisphere and the Mediterranean. What was life like in those areas before 1492? What spurred European expansion? How did European, African and American peoples react to each other? What were some of the immediate results of these contacts?1492: AN ONGOING VOYAGE addresses such questions by examining the rich mixture of societies coexisting in five areas of this hemisphere before European arrival. It then surveys the polyglot Mediterranean world at a dynamic turning point in its development.
    The exhibition examines the first sustained contacts between American people and European explorers, conquerors and settlers from 1492 to 1600. During this period, in the wake of Columbus's voyages, Africans also arrived in the hemisphere, usually as slaves. All of these encounters, some brutal and traumatic, others more gradual, irreversibly changed the way in which peoples in the Americas led their lives.
    The dramatic events following 1492 set the stage for numerous cultural interactions in the Americas which are still in progress - a complex and ongoing voyage.

ABC-CLIO Social Studies Databases: Login - 10 views

  •  
    I just had a look at the month-long free trial and this looks like a great resource for lessons or student research on history and geography. I'm waiting to receive a quote on how much an annual subscription costs. Subscriptions like this, I believe, can become excellent substitutes for textbooks.
  •  
    My school has I believe all the ABC-CLIO Databases and I recommend them highly.
    They come out of our library budget.
    All teachers should at least try a free trial.

ODS Search - 4 views

  •  
    "ODS covers all types of official United Nations documentation, beginning in 1993. Older UN documents are, however, added to the system on a daily basis. ODS also provides access to the resolutions of the General Assembly, Security Council, Economic and Social Council and the Trusteeship Council from 1946 onwards. "

    Not very user-friendly, but if you know what you're looking for you should be able to find it.

AudioOwl - History - Free audio Books - Download mp3 and iPod format today! - 20 views

  •  
    Very cool! You can download free audiobooks (and for once not all of them are C19th originals; some are quite recent) in a format that plays through iTunes and on your iPod/iPhone. For those of us who use iTunes to get our podcasts/lectures/etc this is good news indeed!

Internet Global History Sourcebook - 7 views

  •  
    I'm still looking for quality source sites relating to indigenous history and although this site is still under construction it looks like it will be a valuable contribution. Blessed be Paul Halsall and his History Sourcebooks project, the bane of textbook tyranny everywhere!

Indian Ocean History - 8 views

  •  
    An excellent resource for teaching the history of the Indian Ocean Basin. It has some great flash-based maps where you can click on funky-looking icons and get some detailed historical information. Very Gen-Y friendly and there seemed to be some quality history in there.
    The whole site too is based on a historiographic approach of understanding (and teaching) history as organised around oceans rather than continents or civilisations or periods. An interesting approach I think, especially for showing historical connections between otherwise distinct peoples.

CMCU Workshops - 12 views

  •  
    Is primarily focussed on Islam and religion however it has a wealth of general history links and lesson plans for history teachers. The lesson plans seem quite up-to-date in their pedagogic strategies and should be useful to the teacher who's looking for a 'planning-lite' solution to their lesson delivery needs. (I promised one of the people who designed the site that I'd give it a plug. It really is good.)

Parallel Archive - 13 views

  •  
    Parallel Archive (PA), an "invented" archive repository accessible for everybody wishing to upload primary sources, is developed by the Open Society Archives (OSA) at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. PA is, "at once a personal scholarly workspace, a collaborative research environment, and a digital repository".
  •  
    Has primary sources uploaded by people who have registered with the site in many European languages, including English.
    Come to think of it, is English a European language anymore? Interesting...
