Reviewer Comments:

This is a very interesting strategy that is designed to be used to introduce students to the study of history. The contributor has written a poem that references various aspects of studying history. It is an entertaining piece that is intended to engage students and increase interest in the class. It would be useful to have suggestions about how to follow-up the poem with a discussion about its meaning as well as how it is linked to the rest of the topics in the course. A possible extension of the poem would be to have students write their own poems as a culminating activity about all the topics that were covered in the course.
