  Audio Glossary
   
 

Since the summers of 2004 - 2007, teams of teachers, supervisors, and scholars have worked on the development of the Global History and Geography Online Resource. One component that all of the Department’s consultants have strongly endorsed is an audio glossary. The rationale is that teachers may feel uncomfortable in their classes using words that they really do not know how to pronounce. One of our scholars recommended the sites listed below to help educators pronounce these unfamiliar names, terms, and places. The URLs listed below go directly to:
