Book Group Reflections

TAH Framing Questions for Book Group Discussions

  1. What are the central goals or themes of the book?
  2. Describe the sources that the historian used to write this book. Whose voice(s) are being heard through these sources? Why do you think the historian chose to present these voices/tell this story this way?
  3. How is the story told in this history book similar to or different from what is presented in the history textbook that your students use? Does it change your understanding of this historical period or of historical events?

Please write your 2-page reflection and post it in the forum here.
