"Rich, diverse, and engaging, this is the book for teachers new to Big History teaching"
– David Christian, author of Maps of Time

 

"Offers a great many illuminating insights into the practice of Big History teaching... an excellent, indispensable resource."
– Fred Spier, author of Big History and the Future of Humanity

 

 

 

A powerful analytic and pedagogical resource, our book serves as a comprehensive guide for teaching Big History, as well as for sharing ideas about the subject and planning a curriculum around it. Teaching Big History is also an engaging firsthand account of how a group of professors built an entire Big History general education curriculum for first-year students. This thoughtful integration of disciplines exemplifies liberal education at its best.
