World History for Us All: Teaching Units

World History for Us All: Teaching Units
Home > This model curriculum groups instructional units into three categories. The criterion for these categories is the scale in time, geographical space, and subject matter of the topics to be explored. This system has been designed to guide teachers and students in study of the past on a variety of scales, from broad, global changes to developments that occurred within regions, civilizations, or nations. All teaching units follow standard specifications for organization and design. The table below provides links to teaching units on the site or under development. Related:  Social Studiesbpazder

This final standard invites teachers and students to give attention to long-term changes and recurring patterns of the past. Long-term changes and recurring patterns in world history.

EconEdLink [Note to teacher: The reading ability of your students will determine how you use the flash file. Older students will be able to open the file and read it it independently. For younger students, project the flash file using an LCD projector or television monitor and read the text to students. Regardless of how the information is presented, be sure to emphasize the ABCs of savings by pointing out A is for Aim, B is for Bank, and C is for Coins and Currency. Aim Set a Goal. Things that don't cost much money and take only a few weeks or months to save for are called short-term goals. Things that cost more money and take longer to save for are long-term goals. Remind yourself of your goal by putting a picture of it in a place where you will see it everyday. Have your students choose the "Short-Term or Long-Term?" [Note to teacher: Long-term and short-term are relative terms. Bank Create a Savings Place. Access the above information via a flash file here. Coins and Currency What is saving?

Instagrams Of The Syrian Revolution Chapter 22: A Pedagogy for Teaching Social Studies - LLSS 315 Educating Linguistically Diverse Students Chapter 22: Pedagogy to Teach Social Studies from a Global Perspective for English Language Learners American social studies are based on the concept of extending students social environments moving from self, to family, to community, to neighborhood, to nation and to the world. The global perspective strives to cultivate a perspective which emphasizes the inter-connections among cultures, species, and the planet. This emphasizes: · The human experience in an increasingly globalized community · Humankind as an integral part of the world environment · Linkages between current social, political, and ecological realities and alternative futures · The importance of citizen participation in world affairs Abstract social studies concepts (ie citizenship, justice, freedom, democracy, and globalization) are difficult to grasp for all children. Key Elements of good social studies instruction: · Repetition · Slow deliberate speech · Reinforcement · Visualization · Application of new terminology · Gestures

7 Responsibilities You Have As An American - John Hawkins You hear a lot about "rights" in America. You have a right to an attorney. You have a right to remain silent. You have a right to free speech, a right to "keep and bear arms," a right to "due process," and a right to have "equal protection under the law." Cruel and unusual punishment? Unreasonable search and seizure? We hear about individual rights, civil rights, human rights, and constitutional rights. All that's well and good, but know what you don't hear a lot about anymore? Responsibilities. Responsibilities are the flip side of rights. With that in mind, here are a few basic responsibilities that you, I, and all of us have as Americans. 1) It's your responsibility to pay your own way. 2) It's your responsibility to take care of your children. 3) It's your responsibility to look out for future generations of Americans. 4) You have a responsibility to be an informed voter. 5) You have a responsibility to support and defend the Constitution. 9/11 was a good example of that.

Primary Sources with Document-based Questions • Macartney and the Emperor The Qing dynasty's restrictions on foreign trade increasingly frustrated Europeans, especially the British. In 1792 Great Britain sent a diplomat, Lord George Macartney (1737-1806), to present its demands to the Qianlong emperor (r. 1736-1796). This unit includes an introductory note to teachers with suggestions for teaching about Macartney's mission; a student reading discussing European contact and trade with China prior to and on the eve of Macartney's mission to China; and the primary-source reading Two Edicts from the Qianlong Emperor, which were the Qianlong emperor's responses to the Macartney mission. With discussion questions and suggested activities for students. • The Opium War and Foreign Encroachment In the fifty years after Macartney's visit (see "Macartney and the Emperor," above), Western powers pushed their demands on China further, leading to war and the gradual shift from tribute to treaty relations. | back to top |

Step Two Have students stand and say, "In 30 seconds, when I say ‘go,' take five steps and share with a classmate what your quote is and then tell them what it means to you." Step Three To increase listening skills, a major component of culturally responsive conflict mediation, after one student shares their peace quote with another student, the second student then paraphrases back what they believe they have heard.

The History Project - University of California, Davis The Marchand Archive is an ever-expanding collection of document-based lesson plans (Documentary Source Problems) and more than 8,600 images (Image Archive). This site brings together the original Adventures in Roland Marchand's File Cabinet launched in 1999 and the Marchand Image Archive launched in 2001. With funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, we have expanded the original Marchand image collection to include images from other UC Davis faculty including Andres Resendez, Alan Taylor, Cynthia Brantley, Joan Cadden, Louis Warren, and Karen Halttunen (now at USC). We have supplemented Roland's documentary source problems with lessons based on images in this expanded collection and developed by outstanding teachers associated with The History Project. The Marchand Archive contains two useful collections: the Image Collection and the Documentary Source Problems Collection. Read more about each below.
