The Global Guys have created an indispensable review packet to help students organize and manage the first half of any World History course. This packet is geared toward preparation for the New York State Global History Exam but should be used in any World History course. The success of this packet is the simplicity of organizing data into the most basic components so that students can apply the data in meaningful ways.
UPDATED: The Global Guys have just made review easier. A great practice is to review with your students all year long for that big exam not all at once at the end of the year. Doing 5 questions a day makes it manageable to review a lot of material in a practical way. The 5 model questions in this packet were all taken from the New York State Global Regents Exam and provide an excellent example for how to incorporate this approach in your classroom.
We have found that in teaching Global History constant review is the key to success. This questions combined with the review packet are the most practical way to manage the vast amount of data in any Global History course.
