RELATED UNITS

Unit 1. Maps, Time, and World History

What tools do world historians use in the study of history? This unit begins the study of world history by examining its use of geographical and chronological frameworks: how they have shaped the understanding of world history and been used to chart the past. It is related to Unit 2 because it demonstrates that historians-and the histories they tell-are shaped by their own world's concerns and intellectual frameworks. more »

Unit 6. Order and Early Societies

How do diverse political structures and relationships distribute power and material resources? Through the rise of the Chinese empire, Mayan regional kingdoms, and the complex society of Igbo Ukwu, this unit considers the origins of centralized states and alternative political and social orders. It is related to Unit 2 because it demonstrates how historians can learn new things about the past through archaeology. more »

Unit 13. Family and Household

It is related to Unit 2 because it illustrates the important role of the family as an entity with its own memory and history. more »

It is related to Unit 2 because it demonstrates how individual and collective memories are important components of identity even-or especially-in our own time. more »
