Making Curriculum Pop


World History

Mongol is a rather violent film about Genghis Khan, but certainly we can use clips from films like this to make our history curriculum pop!

Comment by William Zimmerman on March 12, 2013 at 9:29am has published a special free printable for Women's History Month at

It asks: Imagine that you could talk with any woman in history whom you admire. Who would that be and what would you say to her.

You are welcome to print it out and also pin it on your Pinterest page. Hope you will share with your students. 

Comment by Katherine Bolman, PhD on November 25, 2012 at 7:57pm might interest one or another of you. My strong suggestion is that if you start to read one of the units have paper and pencil at hand and write down the answer to the questions. Try it and I would love to hear from one of you.

Flocabulary - you can post those up above in the discussion forum so they don't get buried on the walls and they are shared in our Week In Review e-mails.  Great resources!  Ry:)

If you teach about Modern World History, we are releasing 14 new songs this month. Five are out so far, including the Age of Exploration, Conquistadors, French Revolution, Industrial Revolution and Imperialism. And they are free this week:

Jeremy - interesting idea re: the film Mongol. I think that would be a great assignment for the AP set!
Comment by Jeremy Greene on August 18, 2010 at 11:05pm
Mongol can be wonderfully combined with the concepts of "blood" and "salt" as shown in Stewart Gordon's chapter "Blood and Salt" (about Babur) in his wonderful When Asia Was the World
I use it for extra credit for World History AP (WHAP). Students write where and how they see the concepts play out in Mongol.
