This summer CHNM completed the NEH-funded World History Sources, a website focused on the learning and teaching of world history with primary sources. The site features: Finding World History, a guide to the 200 best online primary source archives in world history; Unpacking Evidence, eight guides to analyzing primary sources as part of world history; Analyzing Documents, eight multimedia models of scholars analyzing primary sources, designed to make the work of historians experienced in world history sources more visible; and Teaching Sources, case studies in which experienced classroom teachers offer a look “behind the scenes” into planning and teaching primary sources in world history. We plan to continue our work in world history, refining and broadening the site’s content and accessibility. Visit the site here: http://chnm.gmu.edu/worldhistorysources.
