About this book


This book is a crucial resource for instructors interested in bringing the past alive for their students through hands-on, immersive educational experiences. While sharing a common historical field, the contributors hail from multiple disciplines, including art history, human biology, biological anthropology, and English literature. Ranging from assignments that involve students editing and annotating a primary work to producing an array of digital projects, and from participating in study-abroad programs to taking part in service-learning initiatives, the chapters will furnish readers with strategies for creating engaged and dynamic classrooms. Although the focus of the book is on Victorian Britain, the pedagogical approaches outlined in each chapter will be useful to instructors of any historical field.
