THE HISTORY SLEUTH

THE HISTORY SLEUTH

Solving Problems in World History

By Michael J. Bakalis. Thirty-two problem-based learning activities encourage students not only to think critically about world history but also, as the author puts it, to "understand the process, puzzle, complexity, drama, and relevance of history." Each problem has a brief reading that sets context, questions for students to focus on as they conduct research, a primary source, and wrap-up questions that emphasize connections to today. Examples: How can we explain the mystery of the Mayan civilization collapse? Did the Crusades plant the seeds of today's conflicts between radical Islam and the Christian West? Was Mahatma Gandhi primarily responsible for ending British rule in India? How have diseases and plagues changed the course of world history? Grades 7 and up. Illustrated. Harbridge. 195 pages. ©2017.
