What's New For Teachers

Re: Hand Grenade of the Week

Hand Grenade of the Month May 2015

Geography 101 (which leads to strategy 101)

I must be throwin' duds. I hear through my sources that some folks are reading these things, but I do not seem to be able to stir the pot enough to get folks to overcome the user processes of interaction since we switched to this new H-WAR format.

Whew, got that off my chest (on a rainy Saturday). ON to the main effort.

"Crisis" in social studies and its impact on world history?

Dear H-World Community,

While geared towards college instructors, I thought this piece by Patricia Emison was a very thoughtful and might be of interest to instructors at the college as well as the secondary level.
