Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Examine India's History through Hinduism and Buddhism


This lesson was created to meet the requirements of an AP World History course.  This would be completed early in the course as a study of the religions of Hinduism and Buddhism and their development and spread in India.

Learning Targets: 
Students will analyze primary sources through identifying the Subject, Occasion, Audience, Purpose, Speaker and Tone of several documents.
Students will compare the primary source readings to the Crash Course video connected to the spread and development of Hinduism and Buddhism.
Students will compare and contrast the documents after the analysis.
Students will also discuss the comparison and contrast to what we already know about India and the development of the ancient societies in India around 500 B.C.E.
