Reviewer Comments:

This is an excellent collection of resources for teaching about The Golden Age of the Ottoman Empire. The lessons are geared towards increasing subject matter understanding and developing important academic skills. Each activity is full of accurate content, thoughtful instructional strategies, and great handouts. Some of the highlights include an introductory activity on primary sources which has students think about what they might include in a time capsule, a web "scavenger hunt" about Constantinople/Istanbul, and a mapping activity examining military conquests under Suleiman. Not only do the lessons include materials that can be used right away, there are also a whole series of weblinks to other relevant content. The materials are based on Washington State Standards around content based assessments and are intended for middle school students.
