Projects

Blank Map Directory – Useful for any map project, they have blank maps of many different regions of the world that you could crop further as necessary and use as the basis for your map outline.

Talisman’s Atlas – This guy creates his own high-quality world maps from all different time periods. They are highly accurate as well, with very specific indications of different groups and states in every region. If you need to find out who was where when, this is your source! I especially find it useful for checking the accuracy of other maps you might find through Google.

TimeMaps.com – Incredible resource for making timelines, getting accurate info for maps, and just learning in general how the world changes over time! You can zoom out or in on space and time and get info as well!

Documents in World History – Collection of sample primary source documents from different periods of history around the world. You can use this as a way to get sense of the writing style of primary sources from a certain time period so that you can imitate it for your own “forged” primary source projects.

Classic sketch. I tried to post the video earlier but it got blocked for copyright, so you’ll have to watch it on YouTube. Just search “Executive Order SNL”. Which of the traits we discussed in class might apply? #MakesOrBreaksLaws #CircumventsAssemblies 🏛 #AppliedHistory #EqualTime #HistoricalConnections #Augustus #JamesIofEngland
What do you think? 🤔 Does that sound like one of the traits from our lesson? Perhaps an appeal to #CulturalUniformity? If you don’t align to to a certain standard, “maybe you shouldn’t be in the country.” 🇺🇸 #AppliedHistory #HistoryConnections #ShiHuangdi #LouisXIV #PeterTheGreat
The Trump administration recently announced a new, get-tough policy that will separate parents from their children if the family is caught crossing the border illegally. It was a big news story. So big it overshadowed the fact that the federal government has lost — yes, lost — 1,475 migrant children in its custody. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told Congress that within 48 hours of being taken into custody the children are transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services, which finds places for them to stay. “They will be separated from their parent,” said Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif. “Just like we do in the United States every day,” Nielsen replied. Just like in the states, only ... not. Except that the states, unlike the federal government, have systems in place to better screen the people who become guardians of the children and much better ways to keep track of those children. And not lose them. That is what happened to 1,475 minors swept up at the border and taken into custody by the federal government. Gone.

Bryan Stevenson on #WhiteSupremacy as the true evil of American #slavery. This should sound very familiar to all of my students, as we have been hitting this point repeatedly.
