The World History Institute at Gettysburg College
Is sponsoring a summer institute, Greening World History: Environmental Approached to World History, for teachers of world history from 10-15 July, 2011. Our lineup of visiting faculty includes Michael Adas from Rutgers, Patrick Manning from the University of Pittsburgh, and Brian Black from Penn State-Altoona. We have created a program intended for high school and college teachers of world history, be they new to the field or more experienced. We are ourselves teachers of world history at Gettysburg College and realize the challenges one faces in offering courses in the subject. Thus, we focus on issues like overall conceptualization, themes, and chronology in our institute, but we also spend much time talking about practical, hands-on topics such as lesson plans, readings, visuals, computer resources, and other materials that have worked in the classroom.
