Some Maps of the Roman Empire The maps on this section of my website are taken from an unidentified late 19c English-language school atlas of the Roman world. It is not the best atlas, nor do I have the full set of maps or the index. At the time I put them online, I was rescuing them, so to speak, since their owner, Jim Miller, was about to lose his website. What is clearly needed is a clickable CAD-type zooming system, tailor-made for computers: I'm looking at various solutions of this type. For now: What's Here? In addition to the ancient names (Roman names) as they appear on the maps: variants of the Latin names not appearing on the maps the modern names of the referenced places latitudes and longitudes the latitudes and longitudes as given in Antiquity by Claudius Ptolemy (Good place to plug this: An electronic edition of Ptolemy's Geography can be found here. On each map, the database will precede the map; you have something to read or search while the map loads. Indexing this Monster Table of Maps Saduba Fl

Des cartes interactives pour mieux comprendre les enjeux démographiques | Enseigner l'Histoire-Géographie | Scoop.it L'Institut national d'études démographiques (INED) vient de lancer sur son site une carte interactive de la population mondiale. Un bon exemple de ce que le web permet aujourd'hui en termes de mise en scène de données. L'outil permet de visualiser la carte mondiale avec un indicateur comme le taux de natalité, le PIB, ou bien le taux d'urbanisation, de voir les évolutions depuis 1950, de comparer les courbes des différents pays. Quel rôle a ainsi joué le facteur démographique dans les révolutions des pays arabes en 2011? Le Proche-Orient s'apprête lui aussi à vivre un bouleversement démographique. Très intuitif, l'outil a été conçu particulièrement pour les enseignant et leurs élèves. Vous trouverez sur le site de l'INED des tutoriels très clairs pour vous aider à naviguer sur la carte.

Dossier : Faire de l’histoire-géographie-éducation civique à l’école primaire, quelques pistes de réflexion Coordinatrice du dossier : Laurence De Cock Contributeurs : Jean-Marie Baldner, Marie Lavin, Jacques Vialle, Laurence De Cock, Suzanne Citron, Laurence Khichane, Isabelle Pawlotsky, Benoît Falaize Ce dossier ne vise pas à l’exhaustivité mais tente une amorce de réflexion sur le basculement des programmes d’histoire-géographie entre 2002 et 2008. L’école primaire a ceci de particulier qu’elle repose sur une polyvalence des enseignant(e)s. La culture disciplinaire y est donc nettement moins cloisonnée que dans le secondaire. Les enjeux politiques y sont forts ; ils reposent notamment sur l’apprentissage des « fondamentaux » : lire/écrire/compter et sur des logiques de transversalité renforcées récemment par la mise en place du socle commun des compétences et des connaissances en 2006-2007. Contribution 1 : Jean-Marie Baldner (membre de la commission des programmes 2002 lancée sous la direction de Philippe Joutard) Contribution 2 : Quel enseignement pour quelle citoyenneté ?

The First Cholera Pandemic - Top 10 Terrible Epidemics Cholera has been around for centuries — the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates seems to allude to it in his work — but for a long time it was restricted to the delta region of India's Ganges River. It wasn't until 1817 when, carried by travelers along trade routes, the disease spread throughout the rest of India and into what is now modern-day Burma and Sri Lanka. Referred to as "Asiatic cholera" by Britain and the U.S. (which would not be hit by the disease until the 1830s), it eventually reached the Philippines and even Iraq, where 18,000 people died during one three-week period in 1821. This was the first of seven cholera pandemics that have spread throughout the globe. Next The Plague of Athens

Make Your map Australians at War The Australians at War education kit is an integrated package that draws on the resources of each of the eight episodes of the television series as well as this website. The education kit, as with all components of the Australians at War project, examines the effects of war on the lives of Australians and how the nation has been shaped by those experiences. Maintaining the thematic and dramatic structure of the television series, the education kit explores the ideas and themes in a way that complements the National Curriculum Profile (Studies of Society and Environment). The education kits have been forwarded to all of the nations' primary and secondary schools and are also available for download below.

Lebensraum: Policy or Rhetoric? When the Germans talked of Lebensraum, or ‘living space’, they used the term to denote a perceived need to have enough physical room to provide for themselves comfortably. In particular, it identified the possession of enough land to feed a population large enough to ensure Germany a place on the world stage. Hitler did not just start talking about the need to conquer Lebensraum in 1941; its origins lay much further back than even 1939. Anti-Nazi newspaper columnists (for example in Der Deutsche in Polen) observed during the late 1930s that Hitler’s foreign policy involved something more than just planless initiatives, improvisation and contradictory imperatives. They said that its main direction had been well-established during the mid-1920s. The second volume of Mein Kampf, published in December 1926, contained a chapter entitled ‘Eastern Orientation and Eastern Policy’. Where could Hitler’s country expand? What was to be done? The Lebensraum project changed with implementation.
