Women in World History Announces Online Forum

CHNM is happy to announce that our Women in World History project will host the third in its series of four month-long online forums in February 2006, Women in Latin America.

These forums give world history teachers the chance to talk about ways to teach issues surrounding women and gender in world history, and how to access classroom resources, including online primary sources. An educator with high school classroom experience and a historian moderates each forum. Each forum is an accessible email listserv that allows all participants to post comments and see all responses.

Our third forum begins February 1: Women in Latin America, moderated by Donna Guy (Ohio State University) and Sharon Cohen (Maryland Public Schools).
