Book Description

With this volume, Dr. Andi Stix and Frank Hrbek thoughtfully guide teachers through three distinct topics: European Exploration, Medieval Times, and the Renaissance. It features expansive, multi-dimensional learning tools to support classroom teaching, including the chance to design a page of an illuminated manuscript, a reenactment of Joan of Arc’s story, a play that focuses on the spice trade, a quiz show simulation around European migration, and a vision test of the illusionary arts as students learn about famous Renaissance artists.

The volume brings materials from across this period of history to life by stimulating and cultivating students’ imaginations.

The series Walking Through History presents student-centered, hands-on activities, active simulations, debates, and discussions, which provide an unparalleled engaging learning experience. Its objective is for students to walk in another’s shoes through lessons based on a particular historical period. Field-tested and proven teaching strategies for virtual and in-person classrooms are highlighted across the series. These books are specifically designed to be used with whiteboard and other interactive tools.
