The websites suggested as sources for answering the profile questions as posed are not easy to search, e.g. What does the need for this occupation tell us about the time period?
ē What was his or her social standing?
high School students simply trying to understand the basics of the Prologue will be lost.

I like the direction of the coursework however, through my experience, I feel the exponential growth of technology has left students astray. I'm not certain that wiki is a reliable source of information, for literarily scholars don't input any insight. The information age is upon us; how do we separate what information is truly honest?

My concern would be to public underfunded schools with slow malfunctioning computers. How will students benefit from said leaning techniques if a mode in with to do so is hindered.
