EXPLORING WORLD HISTORY AND CURRENT EVENTS WITH DAVID ROVICS
A Musical Teaching Aid
My songs are used as teaching aids by school systems in Germany and Sweden and by the Zinn Education Project in the US. This Exploring World History series here is my effort to put a couple hundred of my songs into context in a way that I hope is engaging for anyone interested in these subjects.
There’s no need to go in order here, but it works best if you do. The prose is not meant to stand alone – it is meant to complement the audio or video that follows, which the text is elaborating upon. Ideally, first you read the section beneath a headline, and then you click “play” and listen to the song.
At the end of each module there are thoughts and questions that might be asked about each section to further explore the subject at hand.
