Welcome to your TimeMapper! Use the following prompts to drive your thinking:
· What are you curious about with regards to your region?
· What are your initial thoughts or preconceived notions about your region?
· What would someone studying world history need to know about your region?
· Remember: This project is not about writing national histories, but rather how your region figures into the broader web of global history.
NOTE: The entries that your group decides to write are completely up to your group. In other words, there are not any expectations about which entries should be included. Your group must decide what you think is essential to know about your region in relation to world history. Example is noted below, highlighted in yellow.
After your discussion, determine which group member will write which entries based on that week’s topic:
