Description

See context and make connections across the humanities

 

The Humanities: Culture, Continuity and Change, now in a third edition, has become in a very short period of time the best selling Introduction to Humanities text on the market. With its message of “see context and make connections across the humanities,” student are able to enjoy many “ah-ha” moments as they piece together the world’s intricate, multilayered, and beautiful history through the arts. Believing that students learn best by remembering stories rather than memorizing facts, author Henry Sayre employs a narrative storytelling approach to the humanities, deftly conveying multifaceted cultural experiences in a way that students can understand and will remember–throughout the course and beyond.


 

This third edition helps instructors and students by connecting the learning objectives in each chapter to MyArtsLab, an online learning program which brings the arts to life. Key learning tools within MyArtsLab include new listening guides for the musical selections, Closer Look tours of works of art, architectural panoramas and simulations to help students visualize key monuments and how they were built, and more!

 

This title is available in a variety of formats — digital and print. Pearson offers its titles on the devices students love through Pearson’s MyLab products, CourseSmart, Amazon, and more. To learn more about pricing options and customization, click the Choices tab.
