In teaching world history, it is important to avoid emphasizing Western Civilization, and instead focus on increasing global connection, local conditions, and comparative history. Organizing the class can involve highlighting key moments and turning points, starting with a diverse state like New Jersey, and exploring the question of power. Additionally, college students have strengths in creativity and research skills, but weaknesses in time management, reading comprehension, critical analysis, and concise writing. Finally, civic engagement can be explored through historical literacy tests used to prevent voting rights for marginalized communities.
