Web Site of the Week: Bridging World History
The Annenberg Learner’s Bridging World History course consists of 26 units organized along a chronological thread. The site features a staggering
array of worthwhile resources, including visual aids, expert interviews, an archive of more than 1,500 images and maps, and an audio glossary where students can click and listen to the pronunciation of over 300 place names and historical figures. A great place to start is About the Course, which outlines the logic of the class and provides an overview of the units. Then delve into the units themselves, as they guide you through agricultural and urban revolutions, the spread of religions, early empires, and much more. While middle school and high school teachers will certainly benefit from this information-soaked site, anyone with even a passing interest in world history will also find much to ponder here. [CNH]
