In your respective state's (or, if you are outside the US: national, province, federal, regional, state, etc) world history teaching standards, are there certain topics/subjects that you have a hard time getting information/teaching resources for? If so, what are they? Are there topics that you think should be emphasized more? If so, what should your K12 curric. emphasize? Do you have any suggestions on how researchers and educators could help improve this situation with new findings and by creating new resources?
