Viewing the world through the comparative framework is something that has already brought me great benefit just in reading news articles and keeping up with current events. Mrs. Reed was an excellent teacher. She was very helpful and engaged in the class, and she is also very passionate about what she is teaching.

AP World History - Historical Heads mini-project
AP World History, Gwendolyn Smith
Historical Heads using Glogster - Students choose a historical figure to research and then create a Glogster which showcases key information about that figure. They summarize their research around the ‘senses’ of that figure - what they would have seen, heard, smelled, said, and touched during the time period in which they lived. Glogster allows students to include images, video and music files in the presentation of their research. This is a fun way for students to present research on historical figures of World History and share it with the class!
