Focused on a vast variety of largely visual primary sources (including photos of art and artifacts, maps, and illustrations) as well as selected writings, this collection of 40 concise lessons covers topics in the history of the ancient world, the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance.
Each lesson provides a very brief background on the source, and concludes with 4–8 short-answer questions that ask students to analyze, discuss, hypothesize, evaluate, create, and more. Among the sources: a panel from a painted wall in Pompeii, the Rosetta Stone, the Bayeux Tapestry, the Magna Carta, the printing press, and a West African warrior plaque.
