CrossAsia Entry: A Visual Sourcebook of Chinese Civilization
(Patricia Buckley Ebrey, Jackson School of International Studies, Univ. of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA)
Citation: The goal of this 'visual sourcebook' is to add to the material teachers can use to help their students understand Chinese history, culture, and society. [... We] have [...] prepared substantial units on ten important subject areas spanning the length of Chinese history [...]. Students should be able to view these units before coming to class, much as they would read texts in a sourcebook of primary sources. This out-of-class preparation can provide the basis for classroom discussion, on-line discussion, or written assignments. To facilitate such discussion and analysis, we have included questions designed to make students think about the images they are viewing. To help keep the chronology and geography straight, we have included many maps and a timeline.
