CHILDREN AND YOUTH IN HISTORY is a learning website connecting children to world history concepts.
The project is organized into four sections. Within each section, users can select a particular area of the world to explore.
The Website Reviews section provides descriptions of online resources useful in teaching history.
The Primary Sources area includes 300 annotated primary sources featuring children throughout world history.
The Case Studies area examines specific topics connecting children and world history such as folktales, orphans, propaganda, human rights, and disabilities.
The Teaching Modules section provides primary sources and teaching materials for over a dozen topics.
Librarians will find the focus on children to be an effective way to introduce world history concepts. Work with teachers to weave the primary sources, case studies, and modules into the history curriculum.
