To create a web resource comprised of scholarly essays, teaching materials, and primary sources focused on childhood and youth in American and world history.

In standard textbooks on United States, European, and World history, knowledge about children has been limited to the lives of exceptional youngsters or ordinary children within the family context. Though omitted from history textbooks and most course lectures, children and youth have been the focus of significant historical analysis. Global Childhood: Children and Youth in History aims to promote a fuller exploration of the human experience by providing a free, reliable online resource that will enable high school teachers, community college and university instructors, and their students, to access scholarly essays and teaching materials and to utilize instructional strategies and primary sources focused on the history of children and youth. Global Childhood will include four key features: a Primary Source Database with 200 items; fifty Website Reviews; ten Teaching Modules; and twenty Teaching Case Studies.
