Introduction to the Humanities: An Outline Guide

Introduction to Humanities: An Outline Guide is the outgrowth of many years of teaching Humanities at the collegiate level. Students are often overwhelmed by the amount of material in Humanities texts. Introduction to Humanities: An Outline Guide is a synthesis and reduction of this material. The text is a guide only that Instructors can lecture as usual while students fill in their booklets, thus offering a guided notetaking experience. Content is current and page layout easy to read. A table of contents at the beginning shows students the “big picture” for the semester, outlining all topics to be covered. While topics are presented chronologically, each section is self-contained and thus could be presented in any order desired. Key terms and concepts are placed in bold to facilitate preparation for tests. A glossary at the back allows students to look up any terms missed in class. Definitions are accompanied by suggested viewing and listening where applicable. Supplemental PowerPoints that follow the flow of the books are available that enhance lectures with visual images.
