Website Spotlight: Barbary Wars


Website URL: http://www.clements.umich.edu/exhibits/online/barbary/barbary-introduction.php

Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.

I ask the students to work through the following links:
