My Global History Course Curriculum: Developing Cultural Competency and Skill

This is the approach and curriculum for my college 1st-year global history and culture course. This is simply an example of my approach to the course based on teaching it over the past four decades. Links are provided to the assigned readings and media. It has been a wonderful journey teaching history over the past four decades. I am in debt to my college professors who taught me and my college colleagues who mentored me. In May 2019, I retired from teaching my global history course but will continue to write curriculum, compose articles, and record YouTube videos about what I have learned.
