World History Matters

World History Matters, which has been created by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, is an online resource center that helps high school and college world history teachers and their students locate, analyze, and learn from online primary sources in world history. The site contains two main areas: World History Sources and Women and World History. They include detailed reviews by world history scholars of more than 200 world history websites that are directed at helping students and teachers find the best world history materials on the web. Visitors to these sites will also find a series of guides to working with different types of online primary sources, such as maps, images, or government documents. Also included are interviews with historians in which they explain how they analyze different types of sources. Finally, each site contains essays by teachers in which they discuss how they teach particular primary sources, such as the Huejotzingo Codex of 1531 or women's travel writing. Women and World History, which will be launched in the fall of 2005, will also include 20 lessons plans, with primary sources, for including women in the world history curriculum. All resources on theses sites are free and can be copied for educational use.
