BHP Team

Teachers around the world are interested in teaching Big History, but we sometimes hear they have trouble finding the hour in their schedule to fit it in. To help teachers overcome this challenge, we’ve created three sample course – the year-long course plan, the semester course plan, and the BHP World course plan. Each of these was developed in partnership with our Teacher Leaders so that they reflect the reality of the classroom. Of course, none will be perfect. These are intended as examples, not rigid pacing guides. The following course plans are available:
