SS Curriculum Guides - 22 views

  •  
    These are a set of out-of-print guides made by the NYC Board of Education in 1993-1994. They are full of primary sources, short text selections and activities which many teachers have found very useful. Although designed for 7th and 8th grade they can be modified for high school and elementary school. Many teachers have used these over the last 17 years to help them develop their lessons. They are large files so they will take a few minutes to open. Note that both sets follow the same format but the 8th grade guides were done with a modern text style and therefore "looks" much better.

Dan Carlin - Hardcore History Archive - 9 views

  •  
    This is the latest episode from the Hardcore History program, a podcast updated every month or two focussing on historical topics in often novel ways. Dan Carlin has a Bachelor degree in military history and his focus is on military and social history, which I and my students find interesting. I think sometimes his versions of history can be spurious (the latest one in particular) yet the value of podcasts for student learning are enormous. I make my students download iTunes and get them through that. Happy listening!

CIA FOIA - Overview - 4 views

  •  
    The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) electronic reading room of the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) offers several primary source collections for the study of Central and Eastern Europe during and after the Cold War period.
    The FOIA Electronic Reading Room web site was established by the CIA "to provide the public with an overview of access to CIA information, including electronic access to previously released documents."
    Direct web access to the following collections is now possible:
    # The Soviet and Warsaw Pact Military Journals is a PDF collection of "sensitive Soviet and Warsaw Pact military journals from 1961 to 1984 providing a view into Warsaw Pact military strategy".
    # Preparing for Martial Law: Through the Eyes of Colonel Ryszard Kuklinski is "a captivating collection of over 75 documents concerning the planning and implementation martial law in Poland from mid-1980 to late 1981. The collection release coincided with a CIA symposium honouring Colonel Ryszard Kuklinski, a member of the Polish Army General Staff and the source of the documents."

    Seems to focus especially on the Cold War. Definitely one for the conspirary theorists.

  •  
    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...

    Could be useful when teaching oral history to students. Or not. It's up to you.

The Library of Congress' collections on Flickr - 8 views

  •  
    I thought I'd added these already to the group, however the Diigo toolbar tells me I hadn't and he's never to be doubted. Please don't ask how I know the toolbar is male.
    These collections are well-organised and high-quality. Focus on the US (for obvious reasons).

Peace and War in the 20th Century | Peace and War in the 20th Century - 3 views

  •  
    "The twentieth century has been a century of war. It began with the Boer War in South Africa and ended with the Gulf War in Kuwait and Iraq. This tragic legacy suggests that citizens of the twenty-first century have a shared responsibility to attempt to understand how and why these conflicts occurred and to discover how peace efforts contributed to the resolution of international conflicts. "
  •  
    Primary sources devoted to helping people understand why the C20th was a time of such visceral conflict. If you believe Niall Ferguson it had to do with ethnic diversity in regions of deteriorating economic conditions and declining imperial control. My high school history teacher reckoned it was ideologies. Many of you will no doubt have other ideas...
