It's history recorded by the people, for the people.  Ever wondered what happened around the globe on a specific day, month or year in the past? Or what happened at this specific location yesterday, a few weeks ago, a decade ago, or a century ago? Or how specific events can be similar to other events throughout time and location? We do, and we want to answer these questions.

  8. World The IMF Center: IMF in Action -  One of the IMF's most important jobs is to conduct an annual "checkup" of the economy of almost all the IMF's member countries. These checkups help uncover issues in a country's economy that other member countries may be unaware of. Sharing accurate, objective information avoids nasty surprises in international trade and monetary exchange.

  11.  ChronoAtlas is a completely free and fully interactive historical atlas of the world. The site allows you to browse the entire globe at any point in history and see boundaries changing over time and cities and other features appearing on the map at the time they were founded. The site is also 100% interactive, you can contribute your own data: meaning your own cities, battles, and photos of historic places and events, and you can also draw boundaries of any historical kingdom you want, or edit those drawn by others if they are inaccurate. For the fastest viewing experience, we recommend that you install either Google Earth or the Google Earth web browser plug-in. If you don’t have either of these then ChronoAtlas will automatically redirect you to our more basic map viewer. But in the long run, we highly recommend using the site with Google Earth. Google Earth is also a completely free application and should only take a couple of minutes to install.
  12. Interactive APUSH Review Timeline   This timeline was created by students. While it is not a perfect reference, it is a good general review tool. My students will be making edits and corrections after the AP exam this May.
