World History Bundle
I always struggled to teach World History. It was just one of those subjects that had a lot of content but not a lot of effective tools for teaching it.
The ancient world can seem so remote, making it difficult to motivate students (and some adults) to care about what happened during the time period.
Understanding world history gives students a foundation for understanding today’s societies. When we examine world history, we learn about societies, philosophies, and governments that highly influenced modern countries.
So if we know that we should teach world history the next question is, how do we effectively teach this massive subject?
Make World History Lesson Planning Easier
World History can be a daunting subject to teach simply because of the huge amount of content there is to cover in the course of a school year.
Most teachers are not specialists in all of the cultures they have to teach, which can make it time consuming to prep lessons. I know I always felt insecure teaching topics that I didn’t have a strong knowledge of, and that it often took me a few years to develop that knowledge.
When I also had to prep for multiple classes, I often felt overwhelmed with how much I had to do – and my personal life usually suffered while I tried to learn and write lessons.
I wanted to make the lessons interesting for students, but I usually followed the textbook because I just didn’t have time to create every lesson.
Once I had basic lessons made, I had time to work on planning hands-on activities for my students – but it took so long to get to that point.
