EDITOR'S NOTE: In addition to contacting the author directly, responses could also be posted to the list. 



I am working on a project analyzing the devleopment of the high school World History course from the 1930s to the present in the United States. My particular focus is World History in the state of Texas, but I would like to get a sense of national developments as well. Currently, I am looking for any extant scholarship on this topic, and would appreciate recommendations from H-World subscribers. If you have any ideas, please contact me at

Thank you in advance and stay well everyone!

If I may make a suggestion (and forgive me if someone has already made you aware of this), but there are two moderated Facebook groups, both named World History Teachers, and a third, World History Association Teachers, where those "in the trenches" of teaching World History currently communicate ideas and requests. As I am not sure how many of them are also members of H-World, might I suggest posting an inquiry to both of those lists as well as to the AP World History Teachers FB group (I am not a member of that group, but others here may be and can help with that request).
