The Geography of D-Day

"Holy historic spaces! Has it really been 70 years? Indeed! on June 6th 2014, we commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France….a major turning point in World War 2, and even in world history, the repercussions of which we can still see today. This place, on this date, is when "Team West" was born, creating an entity that defines the modern world like no other, and has hugely shaped the path of the planet for 7 decades. This podcasts deals with just a few aspects of the geography of this particular military maneuver and its global repercussions."

 detailed podcast outlining the impacts of geopgraphy on the D-Day landings. Initially it seems as though the content is only relevant to Americans as the presenter discusses various Memorial days in the U.S., but the content broadens in scope a couple of minutes into the podcast.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 27, 2014 7:00 PM

If you teach history/social studies this post is right up your alley. The website MadeFromHistory has put together 30 infographics that look at 30 key events in the last 100 years, and they do acknowledge that the have "left out quite a few events" due to space limitations. You can also find sections that focus on World War I, World War II, and Civil Rights as well as a Referenced Blog, which shares a wide variety of topics.

For many students, using visuals helps them to recall information more readily. If you teach history from the past 100 years it is worth checking out this website.

David Baker's curator insight, July 29, 2014 12:04 PM
Visuals that include original source materials make classroom experiences much more relevant to students. It allows the story of the events to be made more real whether it is the experiences of WWI, WW II, or Civil Rights.
