The materials address such questions as: What was it like to be a child or adolescent throughout history? How is childhood defined? How has it changed, and how has it remained the same? What factors have shaped childhood, and how did children shape history, society and culture?Children & Youth in History has four key features: a Primary Source Database with 350 resources, along with guidance on how to use those sources critically, and tools for annotating and organizing the sources; 60 Website Reviews that focus on valuable online resources for studying and teaching the history of childhood and youth in world history; 11 Teaching Modules that provide historical context, teaching tools and strategies for teaching with sets of primary sources drawn from the Primary Source Database; and 25Teaching Case Studies, created by experienced scholars and teachers, which model strategies for using primary sources to teach the history of childhood and youth.
