Teaching Modern Global Historyexplores innovative ways to teach recent global history, focusing on the final segments of the world history survey, beginning with the early 20th century. The editors#xE2;#xAC;" unique approach brings together history scholars, social studies teachers, and educational assessment specialists to offer historically rich, pedagogically innovative, and academically rigorous lessons that help students connect with and deeply understand key events and trends in recent global history. Teaching Modern Global Historyhighlights the best scholarship for each major continent/geographical area that is covered in world history classes---Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. We will then explore the ways that this historical scholarship can be adapted and used by teachers in social studies classrooms to help their students think deeply, critically, imaginatively, and independently about issues in global history. The book is organized into eight "body" chapters, each highlighting a particular important event or theme in recent global history, and complemented by detailed discussions of a particular methodological approach. Each section includes: An overarching narrative that helps readers address key historical arguments Several key primary documents or artifacts to the topic, plus a discussion of a particular historical method well-suited to teaching about them Lesson plans suitable for both middle and secondary level classrooms that incorporate the historical arguments and the materials suggested by historians; teacher commentary; historian commentary; and student commentary. Document-based questions, collections of materials suitable for teaching the topic at the middle and secondary level, and short bibliographies all for further research on the topic This invaluable textbook is ideal for any aspiring or current teacher who wants to think critically about how to teach world history and make historical discussions come alive in the school classrooms where the nation#xE2;#xAC;"s students learn.
