This workshop introduces educators to two CEE teacher resources on World History and Globalization. Both books can be used in middle and high school classrooms. The first book provides 23 lessons aimed at teaching world history and economics together using active- and collaborative-learning teaching methods. Lessons in the publication span the period 10,000 BC to the early 1800s, and across world cultures from the Americas to Europe, Africa and Asia. Lessons demonstrated in this program include “The Silk Road,” “Athens and Olive Oil,” and many other topics. The second publication, Focus: Globalization, deals with the controversy of a global economy. The scope and complexity of the issues presented can only make your classroom more engaging. Interactive lessons such a trade fair, debate on environmental issues and role playing public policies with international impact match the demands of the new Common Core Standards.
