Product Description
This is best used as one of the first assignments in a history class to get students thinking about history more profoundly and deeply than just simplistic "facts" and dates and get them interested in the subject. It is also a good stepping-stone toward teaching about historiography and the analytical study of different schools of interpreting history.
It's also a great assignment for getting to know students and to see how they think and write, what is important to them, and what interests them.

Includes two page assignment with plenty of deep questions to keep students thinking and writing and debating for at least one long lesson (or several shorter class-periods), plus about 75 one-page sized quote posters (good variety and more than adequate, but feel free to omit some or sprinkle in some extras of your own to augment per your preference).
