H/21 New Teaching Resources


Here’s your chance to publish your ideas as part of History for the 21st Century (“H/21”), a collaborative project that takes a fresh look at introductory college history courses. The project is supported by a grant from a civic-minded history alumnus at San Francisco State University, and managed by an independent editorial board of historians.  We’re starting with world history courses; and our collection is called “Our World in Time.”
