    Large collection of short historical videos which you can download if you have a YouTube downloader in your browser. Or else if you are lucky and your school has decent internet, you could just watch them in the classroom (*wistful sigh*).

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.

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.

    World History Connected:
    The EJournal of Learning and Teaching
    [www.worldhistoryconnected.org]


    World history poses extraordinary demands upon those who teach it, challenging the talent of experienced instructors as well as to those new to the field.

    World History Connected is designed for everyone who wants to deepen the engagement and understanding of world history: students, college instructors, high school teachers, leaders of teacher education programs, social studies coordinators, research historians, and librarians.

    For all these readers, WHC presents innovative classroom-ready scholarship, keeps readers up to date on the latest research and debates, presents the best in learning and teaching methods and practices, offers readers rich teaching resources, and reports on exemplary teaching.

    WHC is free worldwide. It is published by the University of Illinois Press, and its institutional home is Washington State University. Editors: Heather Streets, Washington State University and Tom Laichas, Crossroads School for Arts and Sciences. Associate Editor: Tim Weston, University of Colorado.

    Check out past issues by using the index key.
    The home page is always the current issue.

    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.

    Thanks very much Jeremy. I'll check it out!

    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...
