The IB Approach to Teaching History with Vikas Pahwa
Show Notes

In this episode of we take a close look at the DP History course, one of the key aspects of any Diploma student’s experience in the IB. 

Our guest is Vikas Pahwa who is an experienced DP History teacher in the city of Gurgaon, India. What I loved about this conversation was the universality of the DP History approach he describes. I felt like I was talking to one of the teachers in my own school because the IB History approach can be applied in any geographical or societal context. It truly is international.  

Books referenced by Vikas:

  • Geographic Pivot of History - Sir Halford Mackinder
  • Power of Geography - Tim Marshall
  • From Silk to Silicon - Jeffrey Garten
