Point of view bias
Point of View & Bias

  • “History is written by the Victors.”

  • All history is subject to point of view, which means it is seen through the perspective or opinion of the creator.

  • Because all history is seen from a point of view it is subject to bias, or personal preference/prejudice about a specific topic.

    • American Revolution

American revolution
American Revolution

  • A fight for independence from the British over issues of taxation and lack of rights. The Colonists won, and were liberated from the British King! TAUGHT TO EVERY AMERICAN STUDENT.

  • The American Colonies rebelled against the Crown. An effort was made to reunify the Colony, but was abandoned do to its unpopularity. Britain gained a great trading partner. NOT EVEN MENTIONED IN ENGLAND.


  • Historians normally attempt to put things in the order that they happen making a Chronology.

  • Once events are in order they divide them into periods of time (periodization)

    • Three long periods in World History are:

      • Ancient

      • Medieval

      • Modern


  • Where something happens can be just as important as When something happens in history.

  • Spatial Frame: Concerns geographic perspectives that historians apply to world events.

  • Interregional: an event in two or more regions at once.

Habits of mind
Habits of Mind

  • There are three “habits of mind” that can be used for history.

  • Look for patterns over time and space.

    • Why did many of the first civilizations arise in river valleys?

  • Make comparisons within and among societies.

    • Compare and Contrast the river valley civilizations of Egypt and China.

  • Assess Universal Standards in light of cultural difference.

    • How do the governments of modern day Egypt and China compare when considering the rights provided to their people?
