While world history materials date back to prehistoric times, the field itself is relatively young. Indeed, when the first edition of Peter Stearns’s best-selling World History in Documents was published in 1998, world history was poised for explosive growth, with the College Board approving the AP world history curriculum in 2000, and the exam shortly thereafter. At the university level, survey world history courses are increasingly required for history majors, and graduate programs in world history are multiplying in the U.S. and overseas. World events have changed as rapidly as the field of world history itself, making the long-awaited second edition of World History in Documents especially timely. In addition to including a new preface, focusing on current trends in the field, Stearns has updated forty percent of the textbook, paying particular attention to global processes throughout history. The book also covers key events that have altered world history since the publication of the first edition, including terrorism, global consumerism, and environmental issues.

"Even as more school districts adopt history curricula that specify historical thinking as a goal, valid assessments of historical thinking remain elusive, and exams continue to focus on measures of factual knowledge or generic reading and writing skills. This edited collection addresses the new landscape of history learning and explores assessments of complex thinking in history. Topics covered include the design of formative and summative assessments for classroom purposes, methods of validating assessments of complex thinking, and assessing content versus procedural knowledge. With contributions from international experts from the fields of history education, digital humanities, and assessment and measurement, Assessment of Historical Thinking is a critical, research-oriented resource aimed at remedying the disjunction between the history classroom and the history test"--Provided by publisher.

This innovative and user-friendly two-volume workbook is designed to guide students and instructors through the ideas and methods of the growing field of world history. Useful as either a supplement or a core text, this hands-on book provides all the elements necessary to conduct a full-fledged world history course, including narrative, projects, primary sources, and a glossary of terms. Using the guiding thematic argument that world history is the history of a single humanity, David Hertzel asks students to examine historical "universals" such as language and the unified heritage of languages, genealogy, myth, motifs and themes of literature, and archetypes. Rather than provide exhaustive coverage of each of these vast topics, the workbook provides judiciously selected historical examples as models from which instructors and students can open discussion suitable to the time and circumstance of the particular class. The projects guide students to recognize universals in their own lives and societies, allowing instructors and students to pursue historical themes in a critical and open environment. Despite the rigor of the comparative method and the extensive use of primary material, the workbook retains a simple but powerful theme and approach, making it accessible to students representing a wide range of educational and social backgrounds.

Offering a philosophy, methodology, and examples for history instruction that are active, imaginative, and provocative, this text presents a fully developed pedagogy based on problem-solving methods that promote reasoning and judgment and restore a sense of imagination and participation to classroom learning. It is designed to draw readers into the detective process that characterizes the work of professional historians and social scientists ─ sharing raw data, defining terms, building interpretations, and testing competing theories. An inquiry framework drives both the pedagogy and the choice of historical materials, with selections favoring the unsolved, controversial, and fragmented rather than the neatly wrapped up analysis of past events. Teaching World History as Mystery: Provides a balanced combination of interestingly arranged historical content, and clearly explained instructional strategies Features case studies of commonly and not so commonly taught topics within a typical world/global history curriculum using combinations of primary and secondary documents Discusses ways of dealing with ethical and moral issues in world history classrooms, drawing students into persisting questions of historical truth, bias, and judgment
