Online Learning Resource
I thought I'd take this opportunity to share this online resource for World History. Admittedly, I do work for this company so it's a bit of a (shameless) plug. If you're teaching History then it may be of some use to you, and if it isn't please tell us why so we can improve on it!
The Atlas is an interactive map showing the change of the world over time. It ranges back from 3500BC and is building up to modern day. It is not fully complete (it does take time to record all of history!). We have had some great feedback so far and we were even voted Number 1 Social Studies website of 2010: http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/2010/10/10/the-best-social-studies-web...
It comes with a set of Lesson plans to get you started, http://www.timemaps.com/ancient-history-lesson-plan
and best of all it is completely FREE. We would appreciate any time you have to take a look and feel free to email me with any feedback you have, patrick.mccourt AT timemaps DOT com
Thanks again for any time you have to spare.
