This is Elizabeth Smith from the University of Kentucky and I believe that local history is
vitally important and absolutely necessary for teachers to use in the classroom. Not only is
there a vast amount of information and resources available for the te achers and students,
but by having students learn about their local history they will ultimately begin to learn
about global history. This is true because global issues, events, and histories have direct
and indirect effects on all local communities. At times this can also be said about local
communities because they too can have direct and indirect effects on global history.
Students can begin to see how this world truly is a 'global village' because their own local
community is connected in so many w ays with the rest of the world.
