New revelations about slaves and slave trade - CNN.com - 12 views

  •  
    "In the 3¼ centuries between 1492 and about 1820, four enslaved Africans left the Old World for every European. During those years, Africans comprised the largest forced oceanic migration in the history of the world. Who were they? Who organized the slaving voyages? Which parts of Africa did they come from? How did they reach the Americas? And where exactly did they go?"

    Pictorial Study Guides for American History
  •  
    These fellows presented their online study resource - which includes, introductions, lesson plans, timelines, fun facts, summaries and test reviews, and a large image gallery sorted by time period - at a conference I attended in Pasadena last Spring. I think it is better for High School teachers and students. I teach 8th grade and use it mostly for my own edification.

Maps of War ::: Visual History of War, Religion, and Government - 15 views

  •  
    Animated maps showing the imperial history of the Middle East and the spread of religions. The graphics are beautiful and provide a simple overview of the broad sweep of history. I've found these useful at the start of a unit/semester/term to provide a general introduction. My students think they need a hard rock track in the background as a soundtrack...

Hippocampus - 2 views

  •  
    Great short easily digestable film clips, documents, and challenges that follow the standards fairly closely. Both regular and AP versions of U.S. History - geared toward high school but I use these clips regularly with my 8th grade class. They tend to retain information from the clips much better than information fron their text (TCI).
