Comment: This is a nice Internet lesson. However it desperately needs to be updated. 1. There should be a consistent menu for the student to return to the home page. 2. The assignments sound reasonable. However the instructions do not work for an online environment. It appears this is supplemental for a live class where more instruction is given elsewhere. 3. The site feels as outdated as it is. It is difficult to imagine that this lesson could not be enhanced in ten years. History education has changed and students are supposed to look at different points of view instead of just learning facts. With that said, I really do like the base concept of this site. I would love to see how it would look; should it receive a makeover to the 21st century.
