New primary source feature “Thinking Like a Historian” introduces students to historical analysis.  Each feature (one per chapter) includes at least five sources organized around a central theme, such as “Christian and Muslim Views of the Crusade” (Chapter 9) or “Women and Empire” (Chapter 24). Questions guide students’ analysis of the evidence and a “Putting It All Together” assignment asks them to synthesize these sources together with what they have learned in class.
