If you are wondering, the photograph on the cover is from Lothal, one of the cities of the Indus Valley Civilization. I took the photo when I visited this archaeological site when I went to India on a Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad program.

You can use this resource remotely in 2 ways:

1) Photocopy the flashcards and send them home to students. Tell them to review a few of the flashcards each day.

2) Display the poster-sized words on your screen and ask students to write or tell you their definitions; you can do this as a whole class or in breakout groups. You can also display the definitions and have students tell you the words; they can also do this as a whole class or in smaller groups. You can even gamify it by putting the students into breakout rooms as teams and giving points to each group that gets the words and definitions correct.
