Random world history resources that make me feel less guilty
I admit it. I’m a bit biased. I love the American Histories.
Which is great if you’re a big fan of US history stuff. Not so great if you’re a world history person, or are big into economics, government, and geography. Because intentionally and unintentionally, I tend to focus on talking and sharing about the US goodies.
And Deb Spade from Valley Falls High School recently called me on it. So . . . while I’m pretty sure that I’ll never get too far from my US history roots, I promise to work harder at including more world stuff. To kick off my rehabilitation, I’ve pasted a few world history resources below.
Update: September 24
Start by browsing through this post I wrote a few years ago about a site called Throughout the Ages.
Then spend some time at the resources below:
