In his previously written articles and books, Chris Edwards has argued that teaching should be considered a field that is separate from both the field of education and from the content area fields. Teaching is a field which synthesizes content and method for classroom application. All of the other major intellectual fields have a canon of works which practitioners can learn from and add to, but teaching does not. The Connecting the Dots in World History: A Teacher's Literacy-Based Curriculum series changes this by showing how effective a teacher-generated curriculum can be. These books can inspire other teachers to create their own curricula and inspire a change in the way that the public views teachers and teaching.

Review:

Kudos to Dr. Edwards for blending historical content, critical thinking, and methodology. The individual "dots," accessible and engaging on their own, are connected in such a way that students are presented with a much broader view of world (western) history. This is a gift to teachers who struggle with translating history into meaningful and manageable units without losing the larger picture.--Charles Guthrie, Professor Emeritus, History, University of Indianapolis
