This past Thursday, I provided a link to an interesting resource found on the site of the Council on Foreign Relations. I had a chance to dig into it over the past weekend and I was not disappointed. The video was high quality; the timeline was helpful and took a long view; and the interactive map interesting. Overall, I found the presentation to be thought-provoking and well-organized. I would recommend it as a background resource for teachers. And I think it has possibilities for direct use with more advanced classes.
I would be interested in other opionions.
