See Context and Make Connections across the Humanities

 

Discovering the Humanities helps students see context and make connections across the humanities by tying together the entire cultural experience through a narrative storytelling approach. Written around Henry Sayre’s belief that students learn best by remembering stories rather than memorizing facts, it captures the voices that have shaped and influenced human thinking and creativity throughout our history.

 

With a stronger focus on critical thinking, and coupled with the new MyArtsLab to personalize learning for each student, the second edition enables students to deepen their understanding of how cultures influence one another. It also shows how ideas are exchanged and evolve over time, and how this collective process has led us to where we stand today.

 

A better teaching and learning experience

This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience– for you and your students. Here’s how:

  • Personalize Learning – The new MyArtsLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, provides engaging experiences that personalize learning, and comes from a trusted partner with educational expertise and a deep commitment to helping students and instructors achieve their goals.
  • Improve Critical Thinking – The second edition includes features that focus on applying concepts and building critical thinking skills in the beginning and at the end of each chapter.
  • Engage Students – Henry Sayre engages students like no other with his storytelling approach and the MyArtsLab Challenge  which guides students through the ages as they master the study of Humanities.
  • Support Instructors – New MyArtsLab with streaming audio, ClassPrep, Instructor’s Manual and Test Item File, and MyTest are available.
