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 my students to work through BOTH of these:
1. America on the Move | The People's Highway: Route 66
Using this excellent exhibition by the Smithsonian, please read through each of the 10 screens (click on "Continue" at bottom right or on each of the ten red dots at the top)
2. Photos: The 85th Anniversary of U.S. Route 66 | Denver Post PLOG
Read the captions under EACH of the photos. Which 5 photos impress you the most? Why?
you will use this blog post in conjunction with both the modules on my
Learning Professor wiki and the numerous other posts in my Website
1. The website spotlighted in this post fits within the following U.S. History survey course module on the wiki:
