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
>>6623020Would it be for elementary school children?
I focus on my country
one year about the crusadesthe second about the french civil warthe third about ww2and the fouth about the holocaust
>>6623020>>6623099Year 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 hegemonyYear 4: fall of the European hegemony - 2000s
I would build my entire 4-year curriculum around Carroll Quigley and Sir John Glubb.
>>6623228Don't forget to include some E. Michael Jones and Michael Collins Piper.
>>6623020do your own lesson plan
>>6623020>I'm not a history teacher btwI 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 invasionWorld 1: Ancient Greece, up to AlexanderBrit 2: Saxons/VikingsWorld 2: China, and the Arab World, the Silk RoadBrit 3: Norman Invasion, the Anarchy, up to Richard the LionheartWorld 3: the Crusades, the founding of the Ottoman Empire. Ends with the Fall of Constantinople.Brit 4: Plantagnets up to the Wars of the RosesWorld 4: Amerindian Tribes, Columbus, and the Conquistadors Brit 5: Tudors and ReformationWorld 6: the European Reformation, Thirty Years WarBrit 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 coBrit 7: EMPIRE AND WAR :DDDD World 7: EMPIRE AND WAR:DDDDBrit 8: The fall of empire and how we got into this shit. World 8: Communism vs Capitalism, Nationalism vs Nationalism, etcWhat am I missing? Am not a classicist.
>>6623020I rather be a NEET than to teach in highschoolt. someone who will soon get his history phd
>>6623020Only 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.
>>6623627That's actually not a bad plan. You could do a lot worse than follow it.
>>6623627>AJP Taylor>David Irving>You should eat fine steak>but also eat this pile of shit
>>6623664It 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.
>>6623332i remember finishing my history gcse 4 years ago, god your curriculum sounds better than the one we got
>>6623719I'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
>>6623105Jesus I hope you're trolling
>>6623157>Year 4: fall of the European hegemony - 2000sHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA
>>6623685What's wrong with David Irving? Please be specific.
>>6624136He was sympathetic to Hitler. That's a no-no these days, enough to condemn you to the ninth circle of Dante's inferno.
>>66230201st 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)
>>6624233The 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.
>>6624239Also 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.
>>6623332Only missing stuff really is early Mesopotamia, and a unit on east Asia. Other than that, bretty gud
>>6624421Also 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.

>>6624558Required texts:The Jewish Revolutionary SpiritThe Culture of Critique
>>6624584Unironically this is a very sensible schema.
>>6623020Year 1- 1 month on prehistory- 3 months on classical Greece/rome- 3 months on Persia/India- 3 months on China- 2 months on Mongols- 1 day on amerindians, mostly to point out how they couldnt use wheelsYear 2- 6 months on the byzantine empire/HRE/crusades- 3 months on English hx- 3 months on French hxYear 3- 3 months on Renaissance and Enlightenment- 3 months on American Revolution- 6 months on the French Revolution/Republic/NapoleonYear 4- 3 months PreRevolutionary Russian Hx- 3 months Russian Revolution and WWI- 6 months WWII/cold war
>>6624655You're stopping at the Cold War?
>>6624966OP said the curriculum had to cover prehistory to cold war. Being literate, I followed the instructions.
>>6623332Where is Rome? We're covering the fall of Constantinople and the crusades but not Rome before?
>>6625077And you always do exactly as you're told, without question, no deviations.
>>6625205Your jpg raises an interesting question: Would a Chinese robot be even more robotic than a robot made by white people?
>>6623020First year revolutionary NapoleonSecond year first consul NapoleonThird year Emperor Napoleon 1804-1812Fourth year Emperor Napoleon 1813-1821
>>6625205Yeah I'm not retarded...but you seem to be passive aggressive as a defensive measure?"Hey anon whats 2+2?""7""No its 4 anon""YOU ROBOTS ARENT CREATIVE ENOUGH"
History is the shittiest core subject
>>6625371You seem to be about the only poster here who did follow the OP's instructions to the letter. Congratulations and a gold star (five-pointed) for you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jZHNjc4Xk0&t=3m56s
>>6625391It doesn't have to be. REAL history is enlightening.
>>6623020>I'm not a history teacher btwCwere doing your work fagit
>>6625077>OP said the curriculum had to cover prehistory to cold war. Being literate, I followed the instructions. 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.
Year one-birth of civilisation through classical empiresYear 2- fall of Rome through middle agesYear 3-european growth and revolutions in US and FranceYear 4- WW1 to present
>>6623685John Keegan would beg to differ with you. So would Gordon Craig, A.J.P. Taylor, and Hugh Trevor-Roper.
>>6623020Year One - Paleolithic, Mesolithic, and Neolithic (2600000 BCE - 3500 BCE)Year Two - Bronze Age, Iron Age, and Ancient Times (3500 BCE - 480 CE)Year Three - Medieval Times (480 CE - 1461 CE)Year Four - Modern Times (1461 CE - 2019 CE)
>>6625799>Year One - Paleolithic, Mesolithic, and Neolithic (2600000 BCE - 3500 BCE)This is supposed to be a history course, not an anthropology course.
>>6623540>British historyYou really want your students to fall asleep or something?
>>6623667Shut up libtard
Black history month. Holocaust. That’s it.
>>6625820Starting 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.
(For Germany):>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 two:Franks, founding of the HRE, how medieval society worked (medieval towns in comparison with rural feudal regions), Hansa, ending with the reformation>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 fourwars of unification, imperial period, WW1, interwar, WW2, Cold War, ending with reunification
>>6625666You 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.
>>66230201st year: Introduction to the ancient black civilizations of Egypt and Mesopotamia2nd year: From Charles to Charlie; a history of Incest in Europe, or why you shouldn't marry your qt3.14 cousin.3rd and 4th year: The american Civil war and its effects of the Confederacy in later generations of jewish teenagers
