Call for Proposals:
“Teaching Case Studies” for Women in World History
Deadline for proposals: November 15, 2004
The Women in World History project invites proposals from dedicated world history scholars and teachers to write “Teaching Case Studies.”
Women in World History (web address given below) will be an online resource center designed to help teachers and students at the high school and college levels locate, analyze, and learn from primary sources, and further their understanding of the complex nature of women’s roles in world history. WWH, which will launch in Spring 2005, is hosted by George Mason University’s Center for History and New Media , and funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The site will include eight “Teaching Case Studies,” each of which offers a “behind the scenes” look at how experienced classroom teachers use a particular source to teach about women in their world history courses. The 1,000-word essays present exemplary models of teaching practice, describe successful teaching strategies, and reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of teaching with the source. Possible types of sources include images, material objects, maps, newspapers, music, official documents, travel narratives, or personal accounts.
For examples of “Teaching Case Studies” from a related project, please visit World History Sources .
To submit a proposal, please email the following items to the e-mail address given below by November 15, 2004:
a description of the source
a description of teaching methods
a brief CV that includes teaching experience
“Teaching Case Studies” authors will receive an $150 honoraria upon the completion of the essay.
