9780312183271: The New World History: A Teacher's Companion (Bedford Readers)

The New World History is a comprehensive volume to help instructors prepare for the challenge of teaching the world history survey. As more and more schools add the course to their curriculum, the need for a collection of writings on teaching issues becomes more apparent. With more than 50 articles by 51 scholars and experienced instructors, this topical reader will prove a valuable resource for both new and seasoned teachers. The editor, a leading voice for advancing the world history curriculum, has organized the articles into 11 pedagogically oriented chapters on topics such as arguments for and against teaching world history and the place of gender issues in world history. Each chapter includes approximately 5 articles; chapters open a brief introduction and an outline of ongoing discussions among historians. An overview of the history of the course in this country, along with a review of the debates that surround it, appears in an introduction that sets the stage for the articles that follow. Annotated bibliographies follow the selections to help foster ideas for further research.
