Bridging World History: History and Memory
Annenberg Learning offers an on-line course in World History. This unit deals with history and memory and how are they different. Watch three video segments dealing with this concept and listen to a discussion on perspective, memory, and historical “truth.” Who knew that a fact is not necessarily a fact! This unit also includes readings, resources, the online text, activities for students, and transcripts of the videos, all in PDF. This unit offers an interesting way to integrate the examination of different time periods in World History along common themes.
