Introduction to the World History Project 1200
Session Date and Time: June 29, 2022 3–4:30 p.m. PT
The World History Project is a global history course aimed at tenth-grade students that provides a cohesive approach to learning and understanding the history of the world. In this course, you and your students will explore our long human history—beginning before humans existed and ending in our present moment. This course will help students learn how to use stories about the past to orient themselves to the present and prepare for the future. We’re going to cover a lot of ground, but this course is not a typical march-through-time history class that covers one thing after another. Rather, WHP uses a set of overarching inquiry problems and narrative frames, situated at a variety of scales, to organize and facilitate teaching and learning.
During this session, participants will understand what the World History Project curriculum and community are and explore how they can strengthen their approach to world history instruction. Additionally, participants will learn how key course concepts, activities, and supports can be implemented in their classrooms.
