Looking at the really big picture reveals unexpected connections. If you want to know about humanity, you have to look at the whole Universe. The Big History Project is a free, online social studies course that teaches the whole history of the Universe, from the Big Bang to the modern day, and into the future. We utilize multiple disciplines and a focus on critical thinking to tell this story, and provide students with a framework to contextualize all knowledge.
Hundreds of teachers around the world are teaching Big History, and this blog captures their experiences. You’ll hear stories from brick and mortar schools, 1:1 classrooms, and everything in between. Our teachers are urban, suburban, rural, public, independent, American, and international.
This blog brings their stories to life, and offers a snapshot of what Big History might be like in your classroom.
Our community is growing rapidly, and we’re so glad to have you here.
