Massachusetts Modern World History Textbook
Modern World History: Perspectives and Interpretations Since 1750
This is a collaborative effort by faculty AND junior-year Modern World History students to create a dynamic wiki-based textbook that will provide both factual information in context as well as perspectives on the current scholarship of the various issues and topics examined under the current Commonwealth of Massachusetts World History II Curriculum Frameworks. This is an on-going project with teams of students each academic year contributing, editing and improving the textbook to make it a valuable and permanently improving resource that can be used by Massachusetts history & social sciences teachers and their students even if their school districts cannot provide access to sufficiently up-to-date printed materials on the subject. It is hoped that this will be a perpetual learning project both for students and faculty.
