What is the difference between world history and global history?
This is an essential first step in learning about World History. Many decorated historians have warred over differing opinions; however, the following offer good explanations of the critical difference that can be agreed upon. Global History: deals with the interconnected world that is continually being CREATED by the process of GLOBALIZATION. Global history provides the opportunity to analyze the phenomena that has been occurring due to this process (globalization). Defn. Globalization: the process of spreading people, things, and ideas throughout the world- causing cultures to interact and integrate. World History: looks at the world (it's people, things, cultures) as ONE UNIT as a way to analyze phenomena that has had an impact on HUMANITY as a whole (ex. climate change, migration, Columbian Exchange).

What is the social learning theory and how does it work in a classroom?
The social learning theory, as created by Albert Bandura, states that learning is a cognitive process that takes place in social settings. In simple terms, this theory explains that people learn from one another through observation, imitation, and modeling. Ex. Learning to tie your shoes. A person learns to tie their shoes first by observing the other, and then imitating each step of the process. In a classroom, social learning can be implemented through a lesson plan. By basing all instructional procedures in a lesson plan on the ideas surrounding the social learning theory, you can ensure that the students are learning in theoretically-based best practices. For example, having students sort recyclables together and identify whether it is paper, plastic, or other.
