Teaching about Haiti in World History: An Introduction

I am pleased to announce the publication of an article "Teaching about Haiti in
World History: An Introduction" in World History Connected, a free e-journal
published by the World Historical Association with the University of Illinois
Press. The essay is designed to help high school and college world history
survey teachers think about how to integrate material on Haiti into their
courses (using written, visual and audio sources - some available in print and
others on the internet).

Haiti is a prime example of so many important 
processes in world history, but teachers who know little about Haiti often
leave it out of world history classes completely (or else give it just a cameo
when teaching about the French and American Revolutions).

Please feel free to share with any public school or college world history
survey teachers that you know!
