One of the best things was definitely listening to lectures, both the ones Mrs. Hawkins created and the Teaching Company lectures she provided for us. I had not listened to lectures in previous history courses, and in this class, I realized how beneficial it was.

Historical Heads using Glogster - Students choose a historical figure to research and then create a Glogster which showcases key information about that figure. They summarize their research around the ‘senses’ of that figure - what they would have seen, heard, smelled, said, and touched during the time period in which they lived. Glogster allows students to include images, video and music files in the presentation of their research. This is a fun way for students to present research on historical figures of World History and share it with the class!
