Ibn Battuta Lesson from Stanford's Reading Like a Historian

Stanford University's History for Education Reading Like a Historian, released a new World History lesson on the travels of Ibn Battuta and the Muslim world in 1320.

Students read from Battuta's travel book, the Rihla, and a secondary source and complete a chart organizing their information into political, economic and environmental categories.

The full lesson includes a short power point that explains the Rihla. If you've never tried Stanford's  lessons, you should. They are terrific and can be used without modification.
