Bridging World History: Maps, Time and World History

World History, understandably, is a huge subject to study. This site from the larger Annenberg Learner site, Bridging World History, addresses the tools historians use to investigate world history. By using the frameworks of geography and chronology historians can examine how these concepts have helped in the understanding of world history. There are so many more ways to study history than looking at just military, nation-state analysis. This site looks at how a geographical area can be used to explore commonalities across political borders to discover the effect of trade, disease, and migration. Included in this unit are readings, resources, maps, audio clips, a video to watch, as well as a transcript of the video. Pertinent questions to consider are included as well as activities.world historyhttp://www.learner.org/courses/worldhistory/unit_main_1.html
