You're a history teacher and need to create a curriculum for 4 years.
How would you make it? Which periods or regions would you focus on?
What books or primary sources would you use as essential reads?
Keep in mind, that your curriculum needs to cover the period from prehistory to end of Cold War.

I'm not a history teacher btw

>>6623020
Would it be for elementary school children?
>>
>>6623049
High School

I focus on my country
>>
one year about the crusades
the second about the french civil war
the third about ww2
and the fouth about the holocaust
>>
>>6623020
>>6623099
Year 1: Bronze Age - antiquity (focus on Hellenic / Roman influence on the modern world in comparison with the eastern empires)
Year 2: fall of Rome - Enlightenment
Year 3: rise of Liberalism/nationalism and European hegemony
Year 4: fall of the European hegemony - 2000s
>>
I would build my entire 4-year curriculum around Carroll Quigley and Sir John Glubb.
>>
>>6623228
Don't forget to include some E. Michael Jones and Michael Collins Piper.

>>6623020

>I'm not a history teacher btw
I am, but I'm trapped by the shitty British Curriculum. Being British, this is obviously British related.

Each year would have four modules, two each of World History and British History.
Brit 1: Pre Roman Britain, ending with the invasion
World 1: Ancient Greece, up to Alexander

Brit 2: Saxons/Vikings
World 2: China, and the Arab World, the Silk Road

Brit 3: Norman Invasion, the Anarchy, up to Richard the Lionheart
World 3: the Crusades, the founding of the Ottoman Empire. Ends with the Fall of Constantinople.

Brit 4: Plantagnets up to the Wars of the Roses
World 4: Amerindian Tribes, Columbus, and the Conquistadors

Brit 5: Tudors and Reformation
World 6: the European Reformation, Thirty Years War

Brit 6: English Civil War, the Restoration, the lead up to the Industrial Revolution
World 6: The French Revolution leading up to Napoleon, plus the 19th century with Bismarck and co

Brit 7: EMPIRE AND WAR :DDDD
World 7: EMPIRE AND WAR:DDDD

Brit 8: The fall of empire and how we got into this shit.
World 8: Communism vs Capitalism, Nationalism vs Nationalism, etc

What am I missing? Am not a classicist.

I rather be a NEET than to teach in highschool
t. someone who will soon get his history phd
>>
>>6623020
Only teach history relevant to my country which if Britain. If you want to know about ancient Greeks go fuck yourself. We would start with education on only the roman section of Britain then from then on the earliest british kingdoms all the way to the british empire.

Force them to read all 11 volumes of Will & Ariel Durant's The Story of Civilization. When they finish doing that, make them read AJP Taylor, Charles Beard, Solzhenitsyn, and David Irving.
>>
>>6623627
That's actually not a bad plan. You could do a lot worse than follow it.

>You should eat fine steak

>>
>>6623664
It might be if not for David fucking Irving. Read some pro German shit, hell go full Bismarck if you want. There's a lot to unpack there. But that hack is to history, even German history what Joseph Smith was to Christianity. Nothing short of a fully blown charlatan who doesn't deserve discussion.
>>
>>6623332
i remember finishing my history gcse 4 years ago, god your curriculum sounds better than the one we got
>>
>>6623719
I'm saying in an ideal world.

At the moment we're doing on the Normans and the Cold War as intense case studies, pretty good still. British schools have lowkey moved on from multiculti shit without making a big deal of it.
the year 7/8/9 classes are fun because I have relative freedom for those, doing the English civil war is a lot of fun

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHA

What's wrong with David Irving? Please be specific.
>>
>>6624136
He was sympathetic to Hitler. That's a no-no these days, enough to condemn you to the ninth circle of Dante's inferno.

>>6623020
1st years; Neolithic-Bronze Age Collapse (10000 BC - 1000 BC)
2nd year; Classical Era Humanity (1000 BC - 600 AD)
3rd Year; Islamic Dark Era (600 AD to 1750's)
4th Year; Industrial-Present (1750's to present)
>>
>>6624233
The Islamic Dark Era is the Era when the diversity of human thought was systemically destroyed by Islamic mauraders who sniffed out countless faiths, slaughter India, infected steppe nomads with Islam, created the stagnant hell of the Ottoman Empire and the brief golden age they had being abandoned by Al-Ghazali almost immeadiately.
>>
>>6624239
Also including the Islam influenced Spain and how their mentality was inherited from Islamic thinkers from Al-Andalus. The savagery of Spanish conquistadors draws a very direct line to Islamic teachings when they applied Jihad to Christianity.
>>
>>6623332
Only missing stuff really is early Mesopotamia, and a unit on east Asia. Other than that, bretty gud
>>
>>6624421
Also missing the Islamic Dark Era and how Britain ended it only to bring it back to ensure the collapse of the EU in the unholy alliance Blair made with Bush to destroy Continnetial Europe with the worst WMD of all- Muslim women and children.

OP said "NEEDS to cover", not "MUST BE LIMITED TO". He never said you couldn't go beyond the requirements. You just want to do the bare minimum. Teachers like you are why we are so mediocre these days.

Black history month. Holocaust. That’s it.
>>
>>6625820
Starting at 10000 BC is fine, lots of historical developments happened than. Like Gobleki Tepi.

Hell a lot of our myths have origin in concepts from those times. Many millennia of thought, culture and tradition we never may know from those times.
>>

>year one:
stone age, bronze age, iron age, ancient civilizations (Mesopotamia, Egypt), Greece & Rome, bit about the Celts and Germanics, ending with the migration period

>year three:
wars of religion, decline of the HRE, rise of Prussia, seven years' war, French revolution and the coalition wars, congress of vienna, ending with the 1848 revolutions
>year four
wars of unification, imperial period, WW1, interwar, WW2, Cold War, ending with reunification
>>

You are assuming a lot here. You could also cover random bullshit that has nothing to do with history based on your premise. Maybe the administration told him those parameters as they have a different plan to cover the other material. Teacher like you like to complain about regulation and how limited they are but the truth is they cant get their kids to pass the most basic standardized test because they suck in the first place. Probably because they are so creative that they cant follow directions themselves.
