This is a demo course to test the features of this platform
You will find that each chapter is introduced by a young girl or a boy. Each chapter is divided into sections. Read, discuss and understand each section before proceeding to the next. Some chapters contain definitions. Many chapters contain a portion from a source, clues from which historians write history. Read these carefully, and discuss the questions they contain. Many of our sources are visual. Each illustration has a story to tell. You will also find maps. Look at these and try to locate the places mentioned in the lessons. Many chapters contain boxes with interesting, additional information. All chapters end with a section titled Elsewhere. This tells you about something that was happening in another part of the world. At the end of each chapter, you will find a list of keywords. These are to remind you of important ideas/ themes introduced in the lesson. You will also find some dates listed at the end of each chapter. In each chapter there are intext questions and activities that are highlighted. Spend some time discussing these as you go along. And there is a small section titled Imagine. This is your chance to go back into the past and figure out what life would have been like. You will also find three kinds of activities listed at the end of each chapter — Let’s recall, Let’s discuss and Let’s do. So, you will find that there is a lot to read, see, think about and do. We do hope you enjoy it.
